Happy New Year's Eve!

Happy New Year's Eve, everybody! I hope you all have fun and stay safe.  We are headed with the kids to see the Halifax Mooseheads play the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.  There are lots of prize giveaways for tonight's game. The boys and I have never seen the Mooseheads play, but Hubs did many years ago.  We're starting off with a meal at Montana's, then the hockey game, then back to the hotel for the night.  Should be fun.  We have lots snacks for the hotel tonight.

These are the last couple of Christmas gifts I never got to post yet.  I made two pairs of felted slippers, the smallest man size, the yarn is Patons Classic Wool in black and shades of grey variegate.  Details here.

Next up was a new pattern for slippers, non-felted, that I got from a friend.  One pair was a gift, one pair was for me.  The yarn is Patons Shetland Chunky Tweeds in charcoal.  It's a one size pattern, I used 5.5mm needles, but if I made myself a pair again I'd go down to 4.5mm or 5mm.  I find these stretched out and are quite loose for my size 8 footsies.  Details here.

My final FO for the year is a pair of socks for Dad for his birthday that was yesterday.  I haven't transferred the pictures from my camera yet, so I'll show those next post. Pictures aren't the greatest, they were taken inside, as we got our first snowstorm of the season on the 29th.  I prefer to take my pictures outside, but it was snowy and overcast.

Happy knitting and Happy New Year!
