I know, this is Thursday, but I have a work in progress to report. I am still working on my fall dishclothes – BUT I wanted another little project to have on the side (you know how that is!). Again, thinking of others instead of myself when doing my knitting projects I want to make Christmas presents.
Kathyb inspired me with her bookmarks and while searching the pattern for those I found this adorable pattern for POCKETBOOK SLIPPERS.
These will make cute little gifts don’t you think?
This little poem goes with them:
I think they are a cute idea to have in your purse when you go over to someone’s house and you take your boots/shoes off and just slip these on to avoid cold feet. They are a great way to use up leftover yarn (which I have a ton of!) and play with colors etc. I started one last night. I got a late start so I didn’t get as far as I would have liked 😦
Spent the early part of the evening with my husband trying to counsel and pray with our youngest daughter Abigail. She is now an adult and making adult decision that weknow are not going to be good decision (because we have been around the block a lot more times than she has). Counseling her now as an independent adult is delivered with much caution and prayer. Giving her direction, but making it feel like it she is just getting our opinion!! Does that make sense?
After she left, it was already 8pm and I still had to call my Mom and check on her and then make a quick light supper for the two of us. Clean up, tend to the hedgehogs and plop – I sat down to knit about 9:30pm and therefore, only got a few rows done. The pattern for these cute slippers is free at Ravelry. Do a pattern search with Pocketbook slippers and you will be all set.
The Great New York State Fair opened this morning. We will be going on 8/27. Excited to see the craft building – I enjoy looking at all the winners!
I will take lots of pictures and share our day. Suppose to be hot and sunny. Hopefully going on a Monday the crowds will not be too big. I get a little anxious in huge pressing in crowds of people – especially in small places/buildings.
