This is ridiculous but I can't stop myself... I just took a picture (actually, Mr. W took it - have I mentioned he's a patient one??) of my favourite slipper. I'm chatting on twitter with someone who wanted cow slippers. Well, sure, but why, when you could have...
Please note the glittery blue toenails. :)
To 'match', I have my fingerless mitts. I have, in the past, commented that I didn't get the whole fingerless mitts thing. It's my FINGERS that get cold, not the rest of my hand. I was politely informed that keeping the rest of the hand warm also helps with the fingers. I tried, and lo, it was correct. So now I have two finished pairs, and several more in progress. The first is made with Patons Rumor, a yarn now discontinued for what I can see were valid reasons. It IS soft, but it started to look scruffy the first time I wore the mitts. Nonetheless, they are... vibrant.
I can't imagine making something bigger out of this yarn, but for mitts it's a nice kick of colour. (I think it looks like a LiteBrite factory blew up. :)
When I write, I nearly always wear a shawl made of white Moda Dea Dream. It's so soft, cozy without being overheating, and now it's just part of the routine. I had some left over, though, so I made...
They are a touch too big but so soft, and they're soothing somehow while I type. When I start the next book's first draft, I'll have to see if I can actually write on paper with them on, but they do work well with the computer. A few times they got TOO warm, and then I just pushed them down and made wrist cuffs (with a weird lump where the thumb holes were).
I'm obsessed with fingerless mitts. (My name is Heather, and I'm an addict.) The good news is that they're a) faster and b) take less yarn than my previous obsession, shawls. :)
Back to blog decluttering. (It's either that or declutter the house, and frankly, this is easier!)
