Finally! I can share! Hit it, Nat!
If you remember, back in October I joined "SocktoberFest." Not to make socks. No. To make slippers for the people I love!
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. . .
(for my brother-in-law, Kurt, and Erin's boyfriend, Keith)
Jack Frost nipping at your nose. . .
(for my sister, Di)
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir. . .
(for my niece, Jes)
And folks dressed up like eskimos. . .
Everybody knows some turkey and some mistletoe
(for my Dad)
Help to make the season bright. . .
(for my Mom)
And then. . . the song ends. For now. I have two more pairs of slippers to complete -- one for my friend, Sandie (nearly finished) and one for Brian (but, really, who wants to knit for a size 13 foot???).
Althought it's been said many times, many ways. . . Slippers make a great holiday gift!
Reports are in: The slippers seem to be a hit with all recipients. This photo (sent by Erin) warms a Mom-Knitter's heart:
I'm ready to put the slipper patterns away for awhile -- but it was fun to give warm feet for Christmas!
