I’ve never been a big fan of pink. I don’t hate it, the way some people do. It just never did much for me. But when I walked into Apple Yarns looking for a sock yarn that would go with both the blue Koigu and the green Auracania, this Aslan Trends yarn practically leaped into my arms.
I don’t even know what you’d call this color. It’s not as orange as “salmon,” not as red as “fuchsia,” more cool than “Strawberry Quik,” and more vibrant than “shrimp.” For the Ravelry entry I just called it “PIIIIIIIIINK.” The closest I’ve gotten so far is “Hello Kitty pink.”
(Like moiraeknittoo, I find the plain vanilla sock pretty soothing to knit. Eye-punching shades of pink aside.)
