knitting fool too

this is for a friends birthday...she has been warned if she kills this one she is done with handknit socks unless she learns to knit them..did i say she has very cold feet? i reinforced this pair with wooly nylon in the foot and doubled the yarn in the heel and toe...you should have seen her last pair i made her...all ripped up and quite pitiful...they were such a lovely red pair...koolaid dyed....
these are going to Connies grandmother who has cold feet..they were going to be for connie...
notice anything odd about these??? first one was knitted in november but i had enough for another pair with purple heels and toes and then one more with a purple toe...i need rip out the bottom one and reknit the toe...they are too big...
this is one slipper before felting...the cat thinks its a toy for him and he trys to kill them...
so i got two done...did i say they were a pain to knit and made my hands hurt??? ANYWAY...i sewed one sole together and now for the life of me cant figure out how to do the other sole...strange I KNOW

after the slippers driving me nuts i decided i needed a fun project to felt WRONG>...this is two days of knitting..enterlac stitch...and its huge...i might get done if Tom woudl quit trying to play with it or sit on it...it will be a very large felted bag when its done

this is the absolute yummiest yarn...and i dont care WHOOOO wants them they are mine...its hand dyed merino wool from cherry hill yarns and bought from Kaleidoscope Yarns ...for some reason these strange people from New England think this yummy color is SPANISH MOSS...now anyone who has ever lived in the south could tell you that spanish moss is grey...maybe with a little brown and purple not NOT this color....

Oh man, what NEAT knitted things you're making! I love your color choices too. I really want to learn to knit. :)
