Hee hee hee! Perhaps we could start wearing colours according to feast day?The other fashion I've noticed is that the unmarried women suddenly don black on Good Friday and the married women don white on Easter Sunday. I am all agog at the very thought of wearing a day-glo pink mantilla, even for Gaudete Sunday.
I love it! I've just started veiling and have considered a red veil for Pentecost or a purple for Advent and Lent but I think I'll stick with black.Although the thought of the day-glo pink for Gaudete Sunday makes me giggle a bit.
I'd be wary of the one in hot pink...oh, just kidding! :)
I saw a woman in a red mantilla once, but it was such an incredible piece of lace that the color wasn't what I noticed first.
I have mantillas is a rainbow of colors. There are just too many pretty ones for me to settle for just black or white.
I'm working on a swallowtail in green Malabrigo laceweight, I worried that it would confuse people. Until I saw the woman with the gorgeous teal mantilla at this year's Mass for Life. Green is my favorite color! It's easier to get through this monster if I'm enjoying every stitch...
