Pervasive year-round in a variety of hues, pink is an enchanting color. It symbolizes the essence of girls and women as it comes alive during special occasions such as baby showers for baby girls, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As women indulge in pink attire during these cherished times, knitters and crocheters are in search for an assortment of pink yarns.
