A few weekends ago, Peter had some errands to run and I asked him to stop at the yarn store to pick up some yarn for a sweater I am making MaKenna.  He asked her if she wanted to come with and, as always, she said yes.  I have to say, I wasn't too suprised when they came home and she had picked out pink yarn.  In MaKenna's world, everything pink is "pretty!".  One of her favorite shirts is pink and she will pick it out every time if it is clean.  She even has a pink book!  It was gift from one of Peter's co-workers given to us back when she was born.  It is called Pinkalicious and is about a little girl who loves pink cupcakes so much, she turns pink from eating too many.  It is now her requested bedtime book and she will even read it to herself.  Ah, yes.  I think this is just the beginning of all things pink.

This is the start of that pink sweater.  At least I know she will wear it!  It is going to be a Christmas present, so I gave myself plenty of time to finish it.  I am already almost done with the yoke.  I can't wait to see it on her.  She really does look good in this shade of pink.  And mom, isn't it a bit deja vu?  It is the same mauvey pink my room was plastered in growing up!
