Pink Sands is a mauve-pink color, reminiscent of pink sand beaches, that somehow manages to be bright at the same time it’s soft and somewhat subdued.
For years I’ve maintained that I don’t like pink. I’ve come to realize what I mean is I’m not a fan of that bright, rather garish, bubble gum pink color (this could be because my childhood room was this color pink for a long time, but it’s hard to say). However, even that pink has it’s place, and looks great in colorwork projects (still too much for me on its own, but not mixed in with other colors, when a bright pop of color is just the ticket).
I’m all about Pink-Sands-pink, though. I love it on its own, like Julie of Knitted Bliss‘s Delineate Tank. And I love it in color work, especially with gray, in a project like The Rain Outside, which I knit in Sunna in Pink Sands and Graphite.
