I am finished knitting slippers.
The slippers are done.
I am in shock.
I started knitting for the first time around April 2006 and my second project was a pair of felted slippers and/or clogs. Those slippers, and the 3o or so pairs that followed it (no, I'm not kidding about the numbers), consumed me. It feels very strange not to have clogs on the needles and I'm kind of "punch drunk" at the thought of what's coming up next. I plan on jumping into....
a) Crazy little chickens for Christmas (I really liked the Camp Cockamamy chickens on the Harlot site and want to do them as doorstops), and ummmm....
b) socks on dpns.
Yes, the Sock Basher/Hanes Queen/ "I will run down Main St. naked before I ever knit another sock" is going to knit socks. Between Marianne's wonderful gift and watching the beautiful socks that Dianne and LW have worked up these last several months, I have to take the plunge on dpns.'
In the meantime, I've been knitting away on my Moderne Baby Blanket and here's where I am thus far:
I didn't get much knitting done this weekend because I had a "slumber party" of sorts. Emma and Isabelle spent Saturday night with me, but Emma refused to sleep until 4 a.m. Still, who could resist these girls?
