Warm Feet Again!

I have warm feet again. I set all my projects aside for a couple of days while I made myself a new pair of felted slippers. I knit the first one Thursday night while watching my tv shows, and I knit the other one Friday night while watching tv as well. I used two skeins of Patons Classic Wool in one of the new colors, water chestnut. I don't usually do pink, but I wanted a light color cuz of the dog and cat fur. (I vacuum every day, sometimes twice a day, but still, the darned fur is everywhere.) Ravelry details here.

I have to watch it already, though. Hubs arrived home, and I took these off long enough to go outside to help him bring his stuff inside. Maggie was inside, Jewel was outside. When I got back in the house literally two minutes later one slipper had mysteriously disappeared already. Must remember to put them up on my dresser when not in use -- they have my old pair for chew toys, they aren't getting my new ones!! (And for some reason they don't touch anyone else's but mine.)

Jewel decided she wanted to play Bingo with the Littlest One the other night. She must be in the middle of everything at all times!

I'll close today with a video clip. Sorry it's dark, it was raining, and I didn't have any lights on. The tv was kinda loud in the background, but you can still hear Jewel. She wanted a rawhide, and for a good half an hour she ran around the house whining and going on cuz she wanted to hide it somewhere. She kept going to the door cuz she likes to bury them outside, but I won't let them take them outside. She tried hiding it a couple of times in the sofa but I guess decided it wasn't good enough. She eventually settled down and chewed it up.

Happy knitting!

Yay for warm slippers! I have to make another pair because my old ones finally developed holes. I'll get on that one of these days. :-)

Those slippers do look cozy! They would come in handy right about now, as it's turned nasty cold here. I will have to make some of those.

Love the video clip!

Nice slippers!
I saw on a TV show once where they trained their dogs to only chew on stuffed toys/shoes that had peppermint scent on them. Can't remember how the training part worked - but do remember a drop of peppermint like you would use in cooking was what they used.

My hubby picked out some nice sock yarn for me yesterday :) Told him if he needed help he was to ask for you and ask your advice :) Told me he spoke to you, but picked it out himself. Now to finish all the other knitting I have to do so I can knit for me!
