my grandmother's slippers

I ran across the pattern for these about the same time
 I finally dug through four totes of yarn I was given a year ago.
 
Good timing!!
 The yarn is all acrylic red heart...
perfect for grandma's slippers.
 
 
You knit with two strands making them warmer and more durable.
 
 
C'mon...who didn't have a pair of these when they were a kid?
 
These are my sample pair so please don't critique.
I promise the next pair will be better.
 
 
 I always know someone that will be happy to test drive them...
mistakes and all.

dolls

Last week I decided I needed to polish up my knitted doll skills
and I made these two.
 
 
I found several new patterns I'm anxious to do.
In the meantime my little sewing sweatshop is gathering dust.
Knitted stitches take a lot more time than sewing machine stitches.
There are just not enough hours in a day.

today...

I did a batch of candles...hazelnut coffee.
I didn't keep one for myself the last time I made these.
Candle making is very enjoyable.

I have had a fun project on my knitting needles the last few days.
I can't wait to show you.


There's homemade macaroni and cheese in the crockpot for our supper.
Sometimes we like to eat like kids.

snow schmow

 
Another 12 inches of snow this weekend...
which buried our daffodils and tulips.
 
 
I guess as long as it keeps snowing
 I will keep sewing flannel pillowcases
for the granddaughters.
