Here are my pretty new Crocs...I got a pair in metallic purple as well. They were on sale at Whole Foods (it was Wild Oats) for $12.50 each. I think they will be cute with skirts. And shorts. It is supposed to be almost 60* on Tuesday and I could wear them then. Oops, forgot it was going to rain. Ah well, I suppose that I can just wait for spring. Although we haven't really had alot of winter except those extraordinary cold days last month. And December. But I have been enjoying wearing my hand knits. And my socks are fabulous. I just finished my first Red Heart Strata sock and am working on the second. Mine seemed to take much longer to knit than knitting A.'s for some reason. Mine are even on size 2's and hers were on 3's. Don't know why they seem to be taking so long but I'll get them done.
Tomorrow there are a couple of lys's open for SuperBowl Sunday and having sales so I might just have to take a trip and see what jumps out at me.
I just finished crocheting a scarf out of some yarn that I had in my stash that I had gotten on Ebay. It's a cotton/chenille some kind of mix and I had no idea how many yards there were. So I grabbed a J hook and chained 30 stitches and single crocheted the whole thing. It's nice and thick and should be good and warm. A very nice light grey color.
I cry your mercy-pity-love!-aye,love!
Merciful love that tantalizes not,
Once-thoughted, never wandering, guileless love,
Unmask'd and being seen-without a blot!
O! let me have thee whole,-all-all-be mine!
That shape, that fairness, that sweet mirror zest
of love, your kiss,-those hands, those eyes divine,
That warm,white,lucent,million-pleasured
Yourself-your soul-in pity give me all,
Withhold no atom's atom or I die,
Or living on perhaps, your wretched thrall,
Forget, in midst of idle misery,
Life's purposes,-the palate of my mind
Losing it's quest, and my ambition blind!
"I Cry Your Mercy" John Keats

I love Crocs...own several pairs of clogs. I will have to look for that style next as they are too cute!
