I adore these!

by adustyframe ~ November 21st, 2008

I found this pattern for Pocketbook Slippers. They look like a little purse when you’re not wearing them.

When my friend Joy was here, she found a wool sweater at the thrift store for $1.50. I usually find black or gray wool sweaters to unravel, so red was quite a find!

I taught her how to unravel it and she shared one ball of yarn with me.

These were super easy to knit. I finished them yesterday and I’ve been wearing them since. My feet are so toasty!

(You can see my swollen foot if you look closely enough. I twisted it at the retreat a couple weekends ago and it’s still swollen and sore. )

    hm… looks comfy!

    is your foot still hard to walk on? or just tender?

    It’s not so hard to walk on but definitely still tender.

    Is red a rare find? I’ll be on the look out for you. Do you only want solid sweaters? (No stripes?)

    Well, I don’t know if it’s rare. I just usually find black or gray wool. You don’t have to look out for me–I find a few and it’s a big job so I don’t need TOO many!

    Ok, now you’ve forced me to keep up with my knitting!!!

    […] I had a few setbacks–for example a broken toe! I haven’t exercised since the 1st of November due to the pain. I thought I was being  a baby until I finally went to the Dr. 2 weeks ago and found out it was broken. I mentioned the swelling here. […]
