One Word Photo Challenge : Fuschia


Fuschia is a flower that grows wild along the hedges in late summer, and it can also be a colour, ranging from pink to a more mauve shade.   I think this lovely wool, with which I made cardigans for my grandchildren, has the perfect shades of fuschia

    Beautiful. You much have such patience to make sure perfect stitches and to make enough for cardigans. I would like to learn to knit someday I think. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Gorgeous – I love the rich variegation in that yarn. The cardigans will be gorgeous.

    I’m always fascinated when I see great big shrubs of fuschias in Ireland–they only grow in little pots where I live! The colors of that yarn are beautiful!
