Anything But Pink!

The last time the lil' cowboy was here for a visit, I heard some complaints from his daddy that all of the extra things that I keep on hand for the grandkids were too girlie for a cowboy, so I thought I better remedy that problem before they come home for Thanksgiving! I don't think there is anything less girlie than camoflauge yarn, so I'm making the lil' cowboy a pair of his very own slipper socks just like the ones that his cousins all have to wear at grandmama's house only they aren't pink!

Yes, cowboys are pretty picky about their stuff. Nothing girly allowed!

Anya said...

Since they do make pink camo fabric, they must make pink camo yarn! But I doubt that the cowboy's daddy would approve...

Krista said...

you could have gone for purple... that's not pink although I bet Daddy would have issue with that as well.... Better knit some grippies on those slippers, have you seen the latest Video?

Perfect! Lucky little guy!

Dad should not have any problems with the camo! Not girly at all. Don't tell him, but it's still CUTE!

Melanie said...

Gorgeous and perfect for the little man. :-) Love that yarn even for adults too. Great choice Susan

Deb said...

Yep, don't think cowboys look good in pink Susan. Those sock slippers look great. Do you have an adult pattern for them?
