At least it is a dark cerise pink/magenta/maroon. With my sister-in-law M expecting a girl in early August (her due date is my birthday and that of my aunt!) I am becoming more used to pink yarn. The previous two cardigans were blue and cream/mushroom. The parents asked for blue or pink. The cream and mushroom was some yarn I had in the leftovers box / stash.
Just don’t expect me to wear pink any time soon.
