pink things

I’m still getting back into the swing of things after playing Ishi in the mountains, so today I’m just going to show you a couple of pink things. I made a little pink poncho earlier this year for my friend Wendy’s baby, but I apparently don’t know how big babies are, because the poncho fit Wendy’s 8-year-old much better. It was dubbed the “family poncho,” and yes, I’m still waiting for photos of each family member wearing it. Anyway, here is Lillie the 8-year-old modeling the poncho (and see that crocheted flower on it? They went to Action Hero Melissa’s crafty bazaar and bought it! Yup, the knitblogger world is converging!):

And here’s the other pink thing–my new Crocs! They are made of some sort of foam, so they are super light. I guess chefs wear them because they are very comfy and supportive or something. I ordered mine from Summit Hut, which took a while because they were backordered on the pink, and then the size was wrong (they run really big):

    Love the shoes! When you say “really big” – did you need to order a size or two smaller than your usual size?

    I love my red Crocs! Strange, though, as I had to buy the women’s size 10-11 and I wear a 9. What’s up with that, I wonder?

    Now those are the shoes you needed on that camping trip. Comfy, cute and no tape.

    OK, now I’m confused about those sizes, but I have been thinking about these shoes, too! Oh, and welcome home. What’s your next knit?

    Crikey. (Croc-ey?) I know what you mean about baby sizes… I made a sweater for the 12-18 month size, and it looked a little big to me. Then I used the same pattern in a size SMALLER, and despite my gauge being right on, the thing looks HUGE so far, bigger than the last one! *sigh* Well, at least when making stuff for kids, you know they’ll fit into it SOMEtime.
    Happy Birthday, can’t wait to see what the new power tool is! 🙂

    You can’t be caught dead in Boulder without your Crocs.
