I have also been knitting some new slippers for me. I use 3 balls of 8ply wool and 1 ball of feathers for strength. Harley and I both live in these sorts of slippers for about 9 months of the year as we live in a cold part of the world. Here is a photo of my new slippers.
My plan from now on is to concentrate on finishing all of the granny squares for my blanket. Harley likes the idea so much that, when my blanket is finished, he has put in an order for his own too. I also will need to make a couple of aprons as my sister in law and my sister are both having birthdays in the next month so I will need to make gifts. Happy crafting and soap making everyone.
