So Much for Fall

 we are having winter today – snow and ice and cloudy skies abound.  Seems like just two weeks ago we were having 34 degree C days and sunshine!  All of this gloomy cold weather has helped out with the handiwork, as being outside is not a pleasure at all! 

IMG_0142 IMG_0143 This is the last little bit of autumn left in the house – loads of cherry tomatoes of the sunsugar variety – tasty little bits of tomato candy! 

and of course, there is the pumpkin my DD picked out after completing  the Run For the Pumpkins run last weekend:

IMG_0146  IMG_0151  It was cold then too!

All this cold weather made DH’s wish for felted slippers a priority – so here they are:

IMG_0155 IMG_0156  IMG_0157  It always amuses me no end that those big boats felt down to normal feet size in the washer!  I did add a leather sole, so I am hoping these slippers will last the winter.  For those who need details – the yarn is Lion Brand Fisherman Wool, and the pattern is  Felted Clogs by Bev Galeskas

 Next on the needles is a pair for DS, and then a pair for DD as well.  Stay safe and warm everyone!

    Oh, hon – snow already!!! That is depressing. Love the shots of those tomatoes.
    I saw someone do up a couple pair of those felt slippers. It amazed me too how much they shrunk

    Hey, great pumpkin and super slippers. It’s getting that time for us too. They are forecasting the potential for snow showers on Monday and I’m NOT ready!

    Oh, my, how wonderful those slippers are. Are they hard to knit? I’ve not a lot of experience in knitting, but I sure would love to make some of these for hubby and the grandkids. Any advice?
