I'll be up with you, MaryjoO. I'm a night owl, and usually stay up til about 3 or 4 AM. If your house gets cold, just snuggle in your sofa under balls of yarn.

I just wonder if my pre-set heating system will know I am staying up one extra hour and not drop down to some coooool temp LOL
This is one of the reasons large bulky items are great for winter work. They keep you warm while you work on them.

Only if you really want thicker slippers. I did a pair in Caron Simply Soft and they turned out nice...soft and comfortable, just thinner

the many free patterns are wonderful of course but I'm also really happy for the designers that manage to get their patterns up in pdf format with the quick pay/download system, and then they can retain their "rights" ... when I see a well written pattern, I am VERY appreciative of the work that has gone into it all.

I've been making slippers with Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. They go SO FAST! I made a pair for my son for Christmas, and now I want some for me! But, my hubby, other son, mother, and grandma also want some. So, I guess I'll have cold feet for a while.

You can do it, cbkirby! But STAY AWAY FROM THE CHOCOLATE! It will HURT YOU!

Eight minutes to go until our next midnight celebration for the Central US time zone. Do I have everyone's name for the drawing?

I'm definitely not a night owl, but had three mugs on jasmne tea earlier, so I think I can make midnight here. Where I am in central CA it is dark ... what happened to that fabulous moon we are supposed to have LOL?

Its too cold for me to venture out to look. my son will go start the truck in a few so I can take his GF home. From toasty house to toasty truck is the only way to travel.
