Now Playing: World series
My Mom and sister's joint birthday dinner is Saturday and since I am a knitter with 17 or 18 pairs of socks in progress - 2 for Socks For Soldiers - (can we say obsessed?), I thought "why not knit Mom a pair of nice warm felted slippers?" Seemed like a good idea at the time. Well here I sit, trying to watch the World Series and the washer, at the same time. The washer is now on the third cycle, the toes and heels of the slippers have felted nicely along with the teeny sock change purse I knit from leftover Paton's Classic Wool in camo color. The body of the slippers, made from Kool Aid dyed Lion Brand Fishermans Wool is steadfastly refusing to felt!!! Am I panicking???? Yes and no, I have more of whatever lovely wool I used to knit the toes and heels which have felted very nicely, however what I do not have in abundance is time. I have to work tomorrow night and Saturday morning. Unfortunately, it would appear the slippers have won. I just checked them, on the fourth cycle and although they are quite fuzzy they are not quite felted. Looks like I'd better get knitting on slippers part B. Hope we aren't too busy at work tomorrow.
