knit at nite

some entries about knitting and family to keep myself motivated at projects and the daily grin, i mean grind.


wish knits list

another little object finito.
aidan has had his curly-toed elf slippers from weekend knitting for a few weeks now. i hesitated about adding the fur because i thought it might be too fussy for a big boy like him. but, one day he asked me when i would get the fur on. so, this weekend i knit up the trim.
as i progressed he said wistfully, 'now they are going to be real.'
'real what?' i asked, 'they were real slippers before'.
'now they are going to be real christmas shoes... my elf booties...'

looking ahead:
clapotis -need yarn, exploring options
boogie vest -need a couple balls more of yarn, swatching, alternate guage calculations complete.
wendy's toe up socks -swatching
in the mood -ggh lara on shopping list
cindy -have yarn

mulling over the possibility of:
tricot and/or mariah

Haha.... that is so cute that he didn't think they were real without the fur. They are way cool with the fur! Apparently your son thinks so too. ;)

Those are so extremely cute and I bet their warm and comfortable too.

Those slippers are adorable. I think I need to have a pair myself. So very Aladdin as well if you made them in metallic yarn. You are keeping yourself extremely busy young lady
