And The Beat Goes On

...cuz the parade of slippers continues. The slippers on the right with the green cuffs are the Oldest One's new pair. The other pair are mens large made for a lady for her husband for Christmas. The same old details, Fiber Trends Felted Clogs, Patons Classic Wool, details here and here. I am on a very short slipper hiatus. I need a break, I started a pair of socks for the Oldest One back on October 16, I'm not starting anything else til I finish those. But the slippers aren't over yet - I have three more pairs that have to be made in the near future, including a new pair for myself.

So last weekend I was off on Saturday, and we didn't have anything to do, and the weather co-operated, so we went and tagged our tree at the same place we go every year.
This one is ours. And it's out near the road, so it should be easy to find when we go back in mid-December. I'd love to have a huge, bushy tree, but space doesn't permit one. Then when we went home after tagging the tree we put up the outside lights, but I'm not turning them on til December 1st.

And lastly -- the generosity of knitters!! Smoking Hot Needles recently went on a destash, I guess you'd say, and had sent me an e-mail, wanting to send me something. I went to the post office last week and was amazed at the HUGE box that awaited me! It was way more than I was expecting, I couldn't even wait til I got home. I had to do some errands in town with my mother, but I ripped the box open in the car to take a peek. Once I got home, though, I could give it a good look. Pumba gave it a good look, too, lol. Then he got quite comfortable.

All kinds of yarns, stuff to make the boys some socks, stuff to make a couple of baby sweaters, other sock yarn, found a couple of things to make maybe some fingerless mitts.... fun, fun, fun! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!
Happy knitting!

You have so much patience! I could not stand knitting the same thing over and over for so long! How do you do it? The slippers must be very comfortable for so many wanting to have a pair.
I'm very glad you can use the yarn! :o)

Lucky you is right! Looking forward to seeing what's in the box besides the cat(s)!

So asking you to make me a pair of slippers would be bad, right?

Very nice tree - I have a little artificial one with built in lights - but I miss having a real tree.

Monika is AWESOME! Have fun with all that yarn!
