I'll start off this post with a gratituitous cute pet picture. This is the latest addition to our household. One of my teaching colleague's hamster had a litter of babies and this was the one my daughter picked out. I do love the color on this one. Don't know what she has decided to name it yet. We have only had it a week.
This is what I am working on for family Christmas gifts. I think I already posted a couple of pre-felting pictures, so here is what they look like after felting. Doncha just love it! I am please with how quickly they are turning out. Only two times through with the smaller blue pairs and three times with the larger gray ones. I used Paton's Classic Wool. I love this stuff and the price is right! Right now I am working on a couple of larger pairs using Cascade 220. We will see how well they felt up. Hopefully next weekend. If I can get a couple of pair finished each week then I might have enough for everyone by Christmas Eve.
So I neede more yarn and took off this morning early for Michaels and luckily all of this was on sale 2/$8. I saved almost $2 for each 2 skeins. I have enough for at least 6 more solid color pairs. Then if there is time some two color pairs. I also got some Lion Brand Wool to try. The yardage is less so I had to get 6 skeins instead of 4 for a pair of slippers. But it was the same price. Probably won't be using it too often, but it had some colors that weren't in the Patons.
Better get busy knitting now so I can use up all this yarn!
