Neapolitan Slippers

I gave that name to these slippers because of the color. While I was knitting, the pink, brown & white (though it's really beige) color reminded me of the chocolate, strawberry and vanilla ice cream flavor called Neapolitan. Not that I've had it in many years. Knit with the same pattern as the previous slippers. They have already been delivered and are in use.

New Year's Resolution #1 - Knit From Stash

"Snuggles Pet Bed"

Knit from 3 strands of lightweight acrylic with stripes of Lion Brand Homespun. Pattern from Very sturdy, should make some pet warm & cozy. Until then, I'll fill it with balls of yarn.

first FO of 2008

That's first finished object (FO) in knitterspeak. Another pair of slippers. Yep, the Man Booties were wearing out fast. These are made with two strands of yarn, felted of course. Wool is Paton's Classic from my stash (yea!) Pattern is Fiber Trends, with an I-cord bind off instead of a cuff. They were fast and easy to make. Barbara's been complaining of cold feet, maybe I'll make her a pair.
