Glass Slipper Sweater

I took it to Thanksgiving where it was tried on by several women, so if you fit it - you get it.
The pattern is "Bold and Bulky Mini Cardi" from Stephanie Japel's Fitted Knits. I have been obsessed by the patterns in this book, though I really don't have a fitted knits body. Her patterns are knitted from the top down with minimal seaming. It was a fun and fast knit. I followed the pattern almost exactly except for the trim on the sleeves where I ran out of yarn.

Man Booties

After one trip around in the front loading washing machine, these shrunk to exactly the right size. Even though the weather here has been quite warm, the slippers have been in use for the last week. They look kinda plain, though.

OK, this is before felting. They should shrink down to human size. Meant to be house socks. Knit from Patons Classic Wool on 10 1/2 needles.
