According to my children, these are. I bought a delightful old 1960s Villawool pattern book off ebay especially for these slipper/socks, and all the little darlings can do is crack up everytime they look at them. They are knitted with 12ply wool on size 3.75mm needles, much smaller than would normally be recommended, but the result is a nice firm fabric. I am yet to knit its mate as maybe I am the only one who can't see what a joke they are, so tell me what do you think? Be honest, I can take it. Believe me over the last few days I have heard it all, kids are so
About this time last year I started a fair isle jumper for my SIL, anyway to cut a long story short and to prevent myself venting about it again, lets just say that the project got shelved. I rediscovered it this morning and thought it was just way too nice to be sitting 1/2 finished in the bottom of my wardrobe, so I have started working on it again. What I will do with it when finished, who knows, I may even keep it for myself. This weekend is a long weekend due to the Queen of Englands birthday, this may seem strange to many but she is the head honcho of our country. Whatever your beliefs on the monarchy are, if it gives me an extra day this weekend, I for one will take it and spend it knitting what else!!
