When I saw the July Hue-of-the-Moment from Madelinetosh, it was love at first sight.
First: I have a deep appreciation for the Barbie brand (I have gone in to this extensively in my Tuesday chats - but suffice to say when my girls were small they would watch animated Barbie movies, and the plot always centered around the girl saving the day, saving the guy, working together, etc. I liked that.)
Second: Deep down I L.O.V.E. pink. I don't always wear it, or knit with it, or paint my walls with it, but I really do love to look at it. And this hot-pink Ken-ergy color was callin' my name.
Of course my next step was to find the most perfect one-skein project to show off these bright Barbie colors. Almost immediately I landed on the Lightweight Hipster knit shawl by Joji Locatelli. This shawl works for all yarns (solid, variegated, etc) but WOW. The criss-cross stitch pattern really makes this Ken-ergy shine.
