So now that I'm having a girl, I can do things in pink! Because guess what--I like pink! It's my favorite color!

I went to Purl and bought pink yarn yesterday.

Blue Sky Alpacas Cotton Worsted. Spoiled baby.

And I find the baby room overly austere--it needs a rug. A pink rug! (Only they're impossible to find...I want a pale pink (see above) and white rag rug...surely this exists?)

And just because I thought this was cool--here's what I saw scattered on the pavement on my walk to Purl yesterday:

The shadow is me.

Pink will be nice. Any ideas for the name yet; I trust you decided against Clementine.

Do you mean something like this?


I don't actually know what a rag rug is.

Don't I wish I were giving birth to Stuart Little.
