First Finish of 2008


Here is my first finished project of the year: the first pair of slippers I've made for the Heet the Feet blitz on now at the Native American Support Yahoo Group. Notice the cute button over there on the right? It was made by the very talented Ann. Unfortunately, I have no clue as to how to make that button into a link to Ann's blog, so if you want to check her out you can click on her name. I've already started another pair, but am using a different pattern this time. The slippers above were made using a very basic pattern that I learned in Home Ec class about 329 years ago when I was in seventh grade. Ann refers to them as Girl Scout slippers, so I imagine many knitters learned the pattern there. I like to add a ribbed cuff to make the slippers warmer and help keep them on better.

Isn't the drawing shown behind the slippers cute? Meital gave that to me yesterday. She drew a picture of the Mama Duck I knit for her, and M.D. is knitting!

In other news, Avi and I finished the translation job we got on Thursday. Now, let's see what else I can accomplish before we get busy again.

I have made those kinds of slippers before, back a few decades ago. That picture is darling.

Those are the bestest warmest slippers!
And I love that picture. I will miss the days when I will no longer receive pictures from my daughter...

Adorable! Both the slippers and the picture. I think those are similar to ones I made my daughter last year, great idea about the cuff!

Nice slippers. They remind me of the ones I used to make a long time ago that were my favorites. Great picture, also!
