Pretty in pink

I seem to be having a pink phase at the moment. It all started on Monday with my new kindle Fire HD cover, Wednesday my new shellac nail colour, lovely pink post from The Pigeons Nest with my toadstool magents (they are so cute) flowers in my front and back gardens, a new baby blanket pattern, pink knitted wash cloths and flowers at my sisters villa rental in Spain.

The baby blanket is an easy pattern, not really a pattern, just cast on 130 stitches and knit until each ball of yarn is finished a join a new one, seven in total hopefully. But because I am using Debbie Bliss Rialto DK (soft merino) it will be a squidy blanket to use from baby to toddler, a lovely hand made gift for a November baby.
I'm not normally a pink person but this week I am surrounded by pink! I hope you enjoy the photos and pattern links

The granny blanket is delightful, love the colour combination and the beautiful border.

Oh those toadstools are very cute! Strangely, I'm not a huge fan of pink even though red is my favourite colour, but I love the pinky zing in your photos! It's good to have a change.
