By the way, is there a pattern for those fantastic fun purple slippers?
They're so cute!

thanks victoise!
Thanks for the info...that's kind of how I figured you'd go about it, but sometimes I still don't trust myself...
The slipper pattern came from here:

I added the furry stuff cuz they were for my partner's 7-year old daughter who is obsessed with all things pink and frilly. Hee.

CUUUUUUUUUTE AmiG! Thanks for sharing!

It's great to see what everyone's working on! LOVE that scarf, Victoise, just so luscious. Love the hats MascaraSnake, both of them. Lots of great stuff on this thread!! I know there's other stuff I wanted to compliment. Thanks for sharing everyone!

Sorry I'm slacking....I'll get some pics of my own stuff up soon. Love this Finished-Projects thread! (and the Works-In-Progress thread too!)

Hi, everyone,
I made 5 of the 2 ponchos shown in the pic, for 5 of my 6 grandaughters for Christmas - boy, what a 'mission' but I did manage to finish them! I also made my youngest grandaughter, 2, the Ragg Sweater from Smartyarns; she just loves the 'love-yous' all over it!

Nice ponchos Lynn!

Okay, here's my most recent project. The felted Fuzzy Feet slippers from knitty.com (great free pattern!).

The picture shows the before and after felting. The before one is of a second pair I'm making. I made the cuff about twice as long in the un-felted one, and with the same purple yarn as the foot, but otherwise they're the same size, and mostly the same yarn, that purple color. Mountain Mohair yarn, I think it's called, a wool-mohair blend. Made for VERY Fuzzy Feet, with all the mohair sticking out! (The white fuzzy stuff in the felted slipper. Makes it appear a lighter shade of purple than before felting!)

Felting took about 1/2 hour of agitation in the washing machine. I used hot water, a little soap, and (very important) two pairs of jeans, to help the agitation and felting process. The hot water was especially nice when I kept trying on the wet slippers, to see if they were felted enough!

Oh, I love the bunny! I have to try that myself(list of things I want to knit gets longer and longer and...)
I recently finished another hat and a matching scarf with fringes. And it proofes I was right! Cause like a week ago I was at my favorite LYs and the owner asked me if I didn't wanted to start a summer/spring project, because surely it would be soon getting warmer everyday....
guess what, it has been snowing the last days and more snow to come!

onesie and booties
Yay! I justfinished a marathon crocheting and knitting session. The onesieis from "Simple Crochet for Cherished Babies" and the booties are from "Simple Knits for Cherished Babies." My friend who lives halfway across the country is past her due date and going into labor any minute, so I wanted to get it outas soon as possible. Whew! Ilove this Lorna Laces yarn--and it only took one and half skeins for all of it!
