Felting the slippers and more

The slippers felted fairly well.  The Lion Brand Wool did way better than the Hobby Lobby stuff I think.  Which means that David’s slippers turned out better than Patrick’s.  Good thing he’s (Patrick) so easy going.  I think I have some elastic thread that I can just weave into the top of the foot to make the slipper stay on.  Note to self, next time, just make the slipper longer.  Here’s David’s slipper:

And here’s Patrick’s:

Also finished up that toy I had been working on for the State Fair.  I didn’t finish it in time for that, but perhaps the new baby will enjoy it.  Speaking of which, by the way, congrats on those who figured it out.


Star Ball

Finishing up the star ball allowed my size 2’s to become available for some adorable socks.  Not sure if they’ll be for me or David, I don’t know if he’ll like them,but I sure think they’re cute.

Speaking of socks, I saw in the Mary Maxim catalog the best new sock yarn.  I’m trying to decide which one to get.  It’s Christmas sock yarn, sort  of fair isle style, and there’s sparklies in there too!  I just love it!
