Lotus blossom beginning. V. girly

I've gotten one repeat of the lace pattern done, but I don't think I'm going to keep it. Reasoning thus:

blue, lavender, and aqua = + 1 girly point
lace = +1 girly point
cute shoulder detail (not shown) = +1 girly point.

I've exceeded my girly quota on this project! So I think I might stick to using this colorway (Intensity) for Heatwave after all. I've ordered some cobalt blue SWTC bamboo, and will start Lotus blossom again when it arrives.

Too funny how I wish I had your Intensity colorway instead of my Cobalt Blue.

That said, I think I like the Intensity colorway knitted up in the Heatwave pattern, IIRC your previous pic.

This is too funny -- I, too, bought the Intensity colorway, and I'm starting to think it'll take an unusual amount of black eyeliner to balance out the fruh-fruh factor.

I'm wishing I'd bought Purplexed instead. If this one fits, I may knit another one in purple or black.

I am totally cracking up over your girly points exceeded comment.

That color is beautiful. Good choice.

I do like the Intensity colourway very much, and I like the way it zig-zags in stocking stitch. That's lost entirely in the lace stitch. So I will wait patiently for the cobalt blue to arrive, which I think is very nice also.
