I have been knitting, it is very exciting, I feel so free, now the blanket isn't staring at me wanting my attention. Do you remember that wool that I bought at loop, well one of the many wools that I bought at loop? I finally got to play with it and I made these toasty slippers. Inspired by a picture nancy at figs and roses put up a little while ago, I desperately wanted a pair. So I figured it out, played octopus needles, at one point I think I had 8 needles occupied at once, redid the heels and the toes a few times but finally managed to get them just right. They are a little big, if I was to do it again I would leave off a couple of stitches but I love the way the cables go down the front.
There is one thing that annoyed me though, the needles I used were horrible. Horrible, there was a gash in one of them and it kept ripping the wool, it was heart breaking. It was pretty frustrating as every time I changed needle I had to check which end I was using. Anyway, I am enjoying my new slipper-socks now and will wear them with great joy whilst winter turns into spring.
Lots of love
