All of my knitting at the moment involves slippers in one form or another. I quickly knit up a couple of pairs of one of my favorite patterns...the pocketbook slippers. I am still diligently knitting the felted clogs. Kate's pair is finished, but still needs sewing. I have one-half a pair finished (except for sewing) of my boys slippers. I have two and a half pairs to go. Hopefully tonight I'll cast on for another slipper, but first I have to dig up some yarn and a pattern (not slippers) to work on during our two and a half hour car ride to our family's Christmas celebration in the Berkshires tomorrow.Here are the slippers for my mother-in-law knit with Bernat Soft Boucle. A much different yarn than I'm used to for this pattern, but oh my they are they sooo soft. I hope she'll like them. I'm going to tuck some money inside...after all it's a pocketbook slipper!The other pair I made using the left-over partial skein from my Sakura Cherry Blossom shawl that I made last spring. This pair I knit for an elderly neighbor friend who is now in a nursing home. I'm not so sure about this yarn knitted up. Each slipper is very different, color wise. They are definitely not a matching pair. In your honest opinion (you won't hurt my feelings if you think they wouldn't make such a good gift for an older lady)....should I keep them for myself and start over with a different yarn, more suitable yarn?Well, guess I had better get going and finish up. I'm getting really tired after a day Christmas shopping. Too much to do...too little time!
Hoep there is lots of happy knitting for you all this weekend :)
