Pink Saturday-knitting & flowers & Stamping

Linking up with above, stop over and visit all the pink inspiration.

I have been admiring these color palette templates other bloggers have been posting and thought I would give it a try.  Wow they are very fun to create.   I found a free template and tutorial over here:  Thank you Rita.   
More orchids from Botanical Gardens visit.

I used a varigated cotton in pastels for this dishcloth and just made the pattern up I thikg I casted on about 35 stitches on size 8 needles, did about 5 row St, then a checker border of 5 st each SS and G and for a number of rows alternating then repeated 5 rows of St and binded off.  I'm not doing an edging on this one, heck it's just a dishcloth, but a pretty one to smile with at the sink when chores call, don't you think.
A few of my latest stamped creations!

We're getting a a little snow this weekend and it's very cold.
Happy Pink Saturday, Hugs, Michelle

Hi! Your palette with orchid is so cool! Love the dishcloth colors, although maybe it should be elevated to a mug's so pretty. Have you tried the Stamping Up fat quarters yet? I got some for Christmas and I'm trying to figure out what to make with them. Enjoy the weekend!

I have some of those dish rags from my mom in law and really had a hard time scrubbing dishes with them they were too pretty to get 'dirty'. It is a gift to enjoy I think. The colors are very nice.

Oh how beautiful is your share today. I love these palette templates and I will be checking out the free tutorial you shared as well. So pretty. Love the orchid photo as well.

Oh how I love the washcloths. Please tell me that you are going to be putting some in your Etsy shop. I would so love to have some for my kitchen. How very pretty they are. Just the crowning touch to the sink area. Please tell me do.

Love your warm fuzzies share as well. Snowmen brrrrr. It is 82 degrees here and so, so pretty. I had to come in to cool off for a little while, so hitting a few more blogs today. This is my first day back to Pink Saturday since I got sick before Christmas. I am enjoying myself immensely.

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Valentine's Day sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
