These were so much fun to make, and they were really quick, too! Ginny has made them, Nicole has made them, and I thought they would be a great first-time-felting project. Gemma really needed a pair of slippers, as the school room floor is like a skating rink in winter (linoleum over concrete--it used to be the carport!), and although these are rather bulky looking, they will be warm. The yarn is from my stash, stuff I ordered for soakers, but found too scratchy. Anyway, they were so quick and such fun, I can't wait to do more!
My other projects are moving more slowly. Una's Sweet Peasy is nearing completion. I just have the bottom border to do, and then it is (ick) picking up stitches for the button bands.
You can see the bit of progress on Gemma's Mini Chic. I have finally separated the sleeves, so things ought to move along more quickly now. And the Noro Kureyon? That's the start of a pair of legwarmers I cast on in desperation. We were leaving the house, and I needed some mindless van-knitting to do, and all of my projects-in-progress were at crucial points. So, being unable to abide drives without knitting, I was literally spinning this ball on my yarn-winder and gathering my dpns as the kids were getting strapped into their car seats and Bret was yelling, "Are you ready?" I used to say that knitting is my Valium--apparently it can be just as addicting!
Reading--oh, I really have no time for it, but I have this book of my brother-in-laws, and it just seems too interesting to pass up. So I read a couple of pages a night. I'm sure it will get pretty hair-raising at some point, but I am only just past the introductions.
I hope to find a little time to see what others are doing. If you haven't already, go visit the Yarn Along at Small Things--you'll be inspired!
