Slippers

mycahs-slippers.jpgmycah-and-slippers.jpgOn the knitting front…I finished Mycah’s slippers.  She insisted on non-matching star buttons. I just wanted to state for the record, they were not my choice, but the slippers were made for her, so I let it be.  She was pretty pleased but they do not stay on.  I think they may need a bit of elastic at the heel.  These are sized up from the Sarrtje’s baby booties I did for the Preemie Project.  Grey has requested a pair as well.  I will actually have to work to figure these out because her foot is much larger and I cannot just go up to a heavier yarn and larger needle like I did for Mycah.

Grey has not been left out in the cold though…Meme (my momma) sent her a pair of knitted slippers from TN.  Momma made them in a bright multi-colored yarn.  They are so cute.  Grey had pj day at school a few weeks ago and she had to wear them.  Of course, she stepped in something she described as “throw-up” and brought them home in a plastic bag.  The good news is that they washed and dried beautifully.  No harm, no foul and all of her classmates got to see them!

I currently have Elliot’s little sweater on the needles and a hat for the tops and pots swap on Ravelry.  I’m pretty excited about both but dying to cast on for a shawl from the new IK.   http://www.interweaveknits.com/galleries/bonus/spring-2008/Cobweb-Lace-Stole.asp   It is incredible to say the least.  I have some alpaca with a twist in a soft grey that I got from a new buddy I made at Knitty and who is also on Ravelry.  Here’s her blog…she’s pretty cool.    http://knittybaby.blogspot.com/   Check her out.  I got some lovely sock yarns too.  SO, I’m dying to cast on socks, as well.  There just is not enough time in the day to knit as much as I want, work, cook, clean and keep up with a couple of crazy girls.  Whoops…forgot the hubby…yeah he needs a little attention too!

    Oh my goodness—-Grey looks GROWN in that photo—she is such a little GIRL–and looks so much like Henry. Mycah looks so much older too, than just a couple of months ago. YIKES! Hope all is well with you guys…

    I was laughing all through this post! how funny!
    I can not believe how much Grey has changed! what a big girl! she has so passed up her “big” cousin in size and in looking like a big girl and not a little girl any more (you know that growny look in the face). sounds like you’re pretty busy in the knitting front! take care – love you!
