And Then There is Knitting

after all the madness of christmas gift knitting, I have been taking it a bit easier in January.  There are knitting finishes tho – how about a couple pairs of warm felted slippers to keep winter chills away?  I have modified this pattern to fit the feet I knit for, added an extra wooly sole, and then sewed on a leather sole so the slippers last longer!

For eye candy I offer this crescent shaped shawl designed by Luise of Impeccable Knits – be sure to check out the group on Ravelry.  This is Southwind, and since the colorway is called Midwinter, I have dubbed it my Midwinter Southwind.  Creative, aren’t I?  IMG_4143  IMG_4144  IMG_4149  We had a sunset in just these shades of blue and purple the other evening!
