Yay! I now have a pink chibi! So I was at this little mom and pop craft store and happened to wander onto the knitting aisle. Another woman there was shoving like a bajillion of the green chibis in her basket which kind of reminded me of my wanting a chibi. But of course, she had taken them all. So I asked the woman at the counter if she had any left in the back and she went back to look for me and what did she come back with other than a

PINK

chibi. Its packaging was a little rumpled and dusty but it was a pink chibi none the less. It was actually so funny because she apologized to me saying that it was just an odd one in the back and offered to give me a discount. On a pink chibi!
So now I'm the proud owner of a 2 dollar pink chibi.

The Clover needle packs come in a plastic case that says 'Chibi' on it.  Chibi is Japanese for little (my friend's cat was named Chibi when he was a kitten.  I now call him Not-So-Chibi)..    The pink cases are the rare ones and people have paid  ridiculous amounts of money for them in the past. 

Here's some:

I don't know if that's just an old picture, but most of the ones I see at the LYS and the craft store are in the green case. 

edit;  geez, cant' spell today Smiley

The newest ones are clear blue and clear orange. The solid white and green ones will probably be collector items eventually. I bet that is why the one lady was buying them all up. haha
I actually like the clear ones better. I can see what's in there.

Wait, WHY do people pay lots of money for them? I don't get it, they aren't even cute..... What's so special about them?
