When I was a baby I was never dressed in pink. My mum was a young and hip art student, so she dyed all my clothes orange. She also painted a lot of the furniture orange. I was probably a very trendy baby.
And that is probably the reason why I have to go through pink phases as an adult. I had my first pink period when I was 19. I was dressed from head to toe in pink. I even dyed strands of my hair pink. I think I overdozed on pink, because for years I couldn´t face wearing anything pink.
But now pink is back in favour again. Big time. In July I made myself a pink linen tunic, using a Drops pattern.
So if you want to avoid having your grown up daughters wearing nothing but pink my advice would be to dress them in pink when they are small. Or they will also go around looking something like this:
Because I used a different type of linen yarn to the one in the pattern I had to do quite a lot of recalculations. I´m quite happy with the result and have worn it quite a lot.
Now it´s a bit too cold to wear this tunic – but I haven´t given up wearing pink. Oh, no.
I have made myself a new pair of wristlets in pink Koigu and pale pink Japanese beads, that were a gift from my friend Wendy.
I´ve also made a pair of wristlets for my friend Mia, who is not well. They are not really pink, but more of a heather colour that I know that she likes.
I hope Mia will get better soon. She´s suffered from borreliosis (lyme disease) for about 15 years and she´s not getting any help from the Swedish health care system.
