Tangerine crochet

Tangerine crochet 4This week Ive been working away on a cardigan for Maia. I was going to save it for her birthday, but I’ve had to have her try it on numerous times to get the fit just right (its a modification of another pattern), so now she is monitoring my progress and (im)patiently waiting until its finished.

Tangerine crochet 2The color is gorgeous, not too girlie but still a lovely soft sherbert tangerine color, just right for summer and an almost-eight year old miss who has recently developed an aversion to pink. I guess the pink I had planned for the trim will have to stay in the draw!

TangerineThe rainbow in these shots comes from a crystal prism I have hanging in the dining room window, I hadn’t realised it was in the frame until the sun came out and I began taking photos.

It’s pretty though, don’t you think?

    I love the color! I’ve a stupid question on a whole different topic: what kind of christmas songs do you (new sealanders ;))listen? White christmas and let it snow would be strange since it’s summer during christmas. .. 😉 (sorry you’re the only person that I “know” down under, and I’m really curious about it)

    The rainbow from the prism goes with the rainbow of the flowers! Looks as if it will be a very pretty cardigan. In the UK pink is an overused colour for girly things, so it wouldn’t be surprising if someone went off it.

    Did you change the look of your blog? I like it. Don’t you just love how children change their tastes in color and styles almost overnight. How lovely your crochet is coming along.
