Here is a picture of Maryssa's Fuzzy Feet before felting.



This is an after picture. It is rather hard to tell how much they changed in size, but they are significantly smaller.

I figured I would join the Global Fuzzy Feet Felt-Along, especially since I have made two pairs of these warm slippers. I can attest to the simplicity of the pattern as well as the warmth of the slippers. Now to get my pictures posted.
I love Bonne Marie's Pieds Brouill├ęs de Shrek concept. I wonder if I could find some shrek green worsted weight wool today? It would give me a great reason to go trolling the yarn stores, wouldn't it?

I have finished the mini Fuzzy Feet I was making for my 6 year old. She is just thrilled with them! They felted easily and she likes the warmth of them. I will try to get a picture posted after work. The pattern was easy to adjust too.

I watched "The Banger Sisters" last night, and knitted a few more rounds on my top secret sweater. I like the way it is turning out. Too bad work interferes with my life so much! :-)

Thank you to everyone who responded to my questions about Brown Sheep wool. I have found a shop here in Alberta that sells it, but I have yet to hear back about the price. I would rather buy it from a Canadian store, than bring it in from the US, but if I have to, I will. I just need to justify starting yet another project!

I have just finished my latest pair of socks from Fortissima Colori colour 9074. Someone on socknitters called this the ugliest yarn she has ever seen. My socks turned out really nicely though. I rather like them. I plan to knit up some in the 9076 colourway, which has the purple jacquard, but they are a few places down on my "to knit" list.

Currently, I am knitting a scaled down version of Theresa's Fuzzy Feet for Maryssa. I'll let you know what they turn out like. I have also started a mohair boucle shawl from The Fleece Artist in the navy blue colourway, and I am knitting Top Secret from Knitty's first issue. I want to get some spinning done too. Too bad I go back to work on Wednesday.
