Pocketbook Slippers Finished

It's cold and rainy and yucky and storms are heading this way. We had one last night that shook the house. The weather is so weird these days. Some days, it's warm enough for shorts...just crazy. I'm just hoping the weatherman is wrong as usual because those storms they're talking about are nasty ones!

I finished my pocketbook slippers which will go into my Christmas 2008 gifts box. These will be for my aunt. I'm pretty sure there will be a few more pairs of these done before the holiday rolls around again. Now, you all know how I feel about acrylic yarn and I never in a million years thought I would ever say this but.....I really enjoyed knitting with this yarn's acrylic! Yep, I said it. I know...I'm shocked, too. It's called I Love This Yarn and it's by Hobby Lobby if I'm not mistaken. The color is Naturals Stripe. It is surprisingly soft and great to knit with. I have another DROPS headband OTN in the leftovers.

Sorry for the dark photo...I just couldn't seem to get a good one. This is how they look when you put them on. They are a little big on me but I have very narrow feet. I think they're going to fit her just fine though. They stretch a good bit and would probably fit several different size feet. I wear a women's 6 1/2 (sometimes a 7) and even though they are a little loose...I think I could still wear them comfortably.

Hope everyone is well and staying warm AND knitting!

Very pretty pocketbook slippers! I'm not fussy...I'll pretty much knit with any yarn, but I'm not so crazy about fun fur. You really are getting your 2008 Christmas knitting on the way to being done really early!

happy knitting :)
p.s. the weather here is awful too...between the down pours and thunder and lightning it's pretty dreary, but I guess we should be thankful it's not more snow :)
