Back from a Long Rest

In Cards, Knitting on June 5, 2009 at 5:10 pm

I’m still here!

I apologize for my long absence. I have been busy and will explain why soon.

Of course, I never stopped knitting. I’m pleased to report that the 2nd slipper is finished!

Stats
Pattern: Grown-up Booties
Designer: Ysolda Teague
Yarn: unknown wool – just some leftover yarn in my stash
Made for: Me. I love to wear slippers around the house. Sometimes I even wear them when visiting my neighbor across the street.

They are warm and comfy. Too warm. I’ve relegated them to my cedar closet until Fall arrives.

Tomorrow is the baby shower for the twins. I can’t wait to give the two BSJs I knit to the proud Mom-to-be. Here’s hoping she likes them.

Though I had a card all picked out, I couldn’t resist making more ‘baby’ cards for the occassion.

Not able to stop there, I made just a few more cards. Some are photo cards. Some are fabric cards for the 4th of July. The flower card and the bird card are made from used/recycled papers.

I just love cards!

Have a wonderful weekend.

  1. Welcome back! Love the slippers now that they’re both done. And the cards are just adorable.

  2. Great slippers. They look very toasty. The cards are cute. :-)

  3. The slippers turned out great and sounds like you will get a lot of use out on them come fall.

    The mom to be is going to love those jackets. They are so cute and I love the colors.

  4. She’ll love the jackets, and the cards look great. Have fun!
