No, not those ones. But I can't say the phrase "fuzzy pink feet" without my brain replaying this scene from M*A*S*H. Sigh. I miss you, M*A*S*H.
The fuzzy pink feet in question are slippers that I knitted for my bestest friend for her birthday. I found a super-soft pale pink polyester yarn at my local Pat Catan's, at a discount price. It needed to be slippers.
The pattern I used is Lucia Tedesco's "February Slippers", which was easy to follow and knitted up quickly. It took me roughly a day to knit each slipper. Would have been much quicker if I hadn't had to rely on stolen moments in between other demands. ;) Once finished, the slippers felt like a dream, and looked like this:
