Cold days... Toasty Toes

Hubby's toasty toes slipper socks (designed by Allena) were finished last night! He was happy to be able to wear them this morning! I now realize that I should have made his first, seeing that his are the largest... I'm just glad that the whole fam is done!

After finishing his slippers early last night I decided to get started on a felted bag. My last beginnig knitting class saw my old felted bag and wanted to sign up for a class on making it. Since i didn't write the pattern I had to alter it and write down the new pattern. This way I can teach the class a simmilar felted bag, and they wont have to buy the whole book. I am in the process of weaving in the ends, maybe I'll even felt it and post a picture a bit later, if I'm still here. This is it about fifteen minutes ago, pre-felted.

*Here it is! Felting is awesome! I just love it... I am going to line the bag this time... and put some pockets in it, so its easier to find my keys and cell phone.*

Next I think I'll start a hat for someone, its for Christmas so thats all the info I can give out;) I'm really itching to get my needles going on some socks... Socktober is hitting me a bit late this year. How about this month being cover up your Toevember?! Ok I'll stop trying, I know i can knit socks whenever i want, even if i did miss out on all the fun.

Hope you all had great weeks! Keep those needles clicking!

The bag looks really great! I haven't done any felting in a long time but I just put on my felted clogs and I'm starting to feel the need to start up again.
