Neon Knits

The neon trend has been around for awhile now. But unlike the neon trend of my youth, this time around it is a lot more subtle. Rather than wearing 3 or 4 neon colors at once, people are choosing one pop of neon. I really like the look of neon paired with white or gray. I have been knitting a lot of baby items lately (my little man is due in 12 weeks!), but my next project will be something for me. I am really tempted to throw in a little neon. Here are some of my inspirations.

  1. I have a skein of neon pink in my stash I’ve been staring at for a year. It’s so foreign to me, I couldn’t think of anything to knit with it. But this post has me completely inspired to ball it and knit!
