Whole Lotta Knittin' Goin On

I had a very productive knitting day today. DH don't worry, I washed dishes, did laundry, made the bed, and cooked supper. I didn't knit all day okay.

I got a wild idea to knit Punkinbugs new slippers. In Punkinese they are lippers. I cast them on this morning. I knitted the first one. After I knitted the first one I did some Stay-at-home-Mom stuff, see the above mentioned note to DH. After I did those things I thought I would start on the second. I finished them. I can't believe that I actually made the pair in one day. I must be getting faster, and size 13 needles don't hurt either. I did notice that it is much different than my sock knitting needles. They feel really different and seem harder to work with also. Want to know what else I did??????

I felted them too and folded laundry while they were in the washer. I used KnitPicks Wool of the Andes in Violet and Tulip. She picked the colors out so they are very girly.

Started at 10:30 finished around 5:30 or so. Woo hoo.

Oh, way TOO cool!

You can get some of the stuff you paint on tool handles from the home store - or maybe Brett can bring some home from work - to paint on and make them less slippery.

Wow, I thought I was cool for finishing a halter top in a weekend. Of course, it was because soccer games were called due to rain and thunder and lightning. Very cute slippers.

Wow!! I love the lippers!! Very cute! Great color! And to finish them in a day (even with all the other 'stuff' one has to do) Congratulations!!
