The perfect red

Ever since I finished my Just Enough Ruffles last month, I knew I wanted to knit another one. But in red. So I searched and searched and searched for the perfect red Malabrigo and I even came close to buying a couple colors (Vermillion, Amoroso, Pagoda) but none of them were “it.”

Thankfully I kept searching and found Ravelry Red at Little Knits last week.

Yet another reason I love Ravelry by you.


I’ll be casting on another scarf as soon as I finish my February Baby Sweater!!! I’m so! close!

    And, um, so if this knitting thing doesn’t work out … there’s always photography. OMG, Vanessa, check out your props!
    You’re so good.

    Love you.

    Gurl now you KNOW I had searched and searched for the perfect red in Malabrigo!! That Ravelry Red colorway came out a looong discussion of the perfect Mal red (that you know I participated in Haha).

    For me, my perfect Mal Red is Torero!! It is the true bright valentine red!!

    Just depends on ya flava! 😉

    The Ravelry Red is another perfect one!! Can’t wait it to see it in the ruffle scarf!

    So funny that Stacey mentioned the Torero since it’s the same color as the lovely laceweight you de-stashed and sent to me 🙂

    Red is one of those really subjective colors, but I love your Ravelry Red! I might have to track some down (and I hear that Knitting Nest in Austin carries it. Ha!)

    I love the photo of the FBS and daisies lit by the sunlight.

    Ah it turned out so cute Vaness. I love the little sweater. And seriously, Aunt Marlene is right…you have a knack for serious photography. Keep it up.

    Missing you so much already… 😦

    Your knitting is awesome. Wish I had that kind of talent.
