Yarn: Bearfoot by Mountain Colors in Northern Lights-1 skein
Needles: size 3 and 2
I started the Felted Clog's for Children by Fiber Trends for Christmas gifts. I'm making 2 pairs.
I have made these before and don't have a circular needle but there are directions to make them on straights. The yarn is Fisherman Wool by Lion Brand which I dyed with Kool Aid a while back with Jess. That was a fun project but I have been hanging on to this yarn with no idea what to do with it. Perfect colors for a little girl right?
I love that these are so fast! What are you knitting for Christmas?

First there is Christmas coming up. I have tried to not overwhelm myself with too much to do this year. That said, I tend to add things on as I go. I am planning to make only 4 things right now.
- A present for my sister-in-law since I drew her name this year. I know just what to make but she might lurk here so no hints!
- Felted slippers for my niece and nephew. These have to be done around Thanksgiving so they're next on the list
- Felted slippers for my niece and nephew. (These count as 2 things because I have to make 2 pairs)
- A little thing for BDiddy ( I know he lurks here so I can't tell you what it is) I can say that I'm using Noro Kureyon for this because I'm pretty sure he doesn't know what that is.
That isn't bad. I forgot that I have to make a craft for our girls gift exchange we do every year. But we often get together after Christmas to do this as it involves going out for dinner without kids. Lots of thing to coordinate for that to happen. This year we added a few new people to our group to do this so I think we are up to 7. Its a fun way to show your friends you care without having to make everyone a gift.
I got my Ravelry invite!! I can't believe I haven't posted this sooner. My user name is Imagine Knit. Check me out! I'm considering changing the blog name to this too. I know more changes but I like that better. I better do a blog search first. edited to add: obviously I changed it after writing this:)
Not much going on with the family except, BDiddy got a new boat. He's had the old one for almost 8 years and its little. The new one is a 18 foot fishing boat with lots of seating for kids and friends, a live well, a bigger motor, sun shade ect. He is so excited. It's funny to hear him talk about it and he asked me like 5 times last night if I like it. The answer is yes I do but it's really his deal. I'm just along for the ride.
I'm off to finish those socks! Knit on!

They then lit them on fire from the inside and took pictures. The 3 suspects are at large and considered armed (with spoons) and dangerous. One was overheard squealing and seen throwing the innards around.

The bunting is done!
Yarn: Arucania Nature Wool (No color name, just a code 33)
Modifications: I knit this in the round to the yoke, instead of a zipper I added buttons to the chest area and added seat belt holes. Sleeves were picked up rather than knit and stitched on. I also used worsted weight yarn instead of sport weight for a slightly larger size.
Look at that proud mama!
It is a little big yet, but its better too big than too small. It feels so good to finish this project and I love how it turned out. Jess liked it too which is a relief since I was thinking I might not get it done this century. Onward to new projects!
P.S. I am fully aware this posting is full of exclamation points, it just feels like the thing to do!
