Cha Cha Red Pearl

Well, my yarn budget has been drastically reduced for the foreseeable future.  (Thus the importance of having a MASSIVE stash!!)  Last week, we brought home a brand new car in a lovely deep burgundy shade that Honda has dubbed Tango Red Pearl.  However, since Tango is my least favorite of all the ballroom dances we do, I've renamed it Cha Cha Red Pearl.  Ha!!

Click any pic to biggie!!

Ooohh, a moon-roof!!

And just in case the neighbors didn't find it weird enough that I was standing in my driveway taking pictures of the car, I went one step further.  The important task of showing you how well my Tango Cha Cha Red Pearl car coordinates with some of my favorite stash yarn!


Yes, the neighbors may not understand how crucial car / yarn coordination is.  But I know the Knitters do!!

that yarn on the hood of the car made me smile from cheek to cheek! You are so awesome!

(I'm not a knitter but I totally get it)

Just remember what they say--red cars go faster. I love my red car. Have fun!

Beautiful! I know you'll be very happy with it! I had a beautiful red Honda Civic for 12 years and would still have it if someone hadn't totaled it! (but we do still have my 1987 red Honda CRX!!)

Congrats on the new car. You will LOVE your Honda.

I'm another long-term Honda owner --- 11 year old CR-V with 148,000+ miles on it and still going strong.

Enjoy!
