It's December! Already?

Really? It's already December? This year has flown by. I have a suspicion that December will fly by even faster than the previous 11 months have. There is alot of knitting and sewing that needs to be done for Christmas. I've gotten a few things done but not all that I hope to (or need to) get finished.

Thanksgiving with family was wonderful!

And finally some Christmas Items:
slippers pre-felting - approx 13" long before they were felted
used Bernat Felting Natural Wool - I much prefer the Paton's Soy Wool yarn! In my opinion the Paton's Soy Wool is more enjoyable to knit with. I also prefer the way the Patons SWS felts over the Bernat. Unfortunately I've got 2 more pairs of slippers to make out of the Bernat. :(
slippers for dd (pre-felting)

After felting - approx 7 1/2" long

Another pair of slippers for a gift - used Paton's Soy Wool Stripes - pre felting approx 15" long

felted - approx 9" long

I also finished up my husband's socks but I've not gotten a decent picture of them. They do not want to cooperate with being photographed indoors and it's simply been too cloudy & gray & icky out here or too blustery and freezing to try to get a picture outdoors in natural lighting. Hopefully I can get a picture of them soon though and post. He seems to really enjoy them.
