Full Circle

I hate to bring this up again but remember the slippers I knit for my niece that were too small and I gave them away to a friend's little girl? Well, I returned to work the next day to find an envelope taped to the outside of my locker. Pyper had painted me a butterfly as a thank you for the slippers. She did it all by herself, her mom said she wasn't allowed in Pyper's room while she was painting. How.Cute.
Naturally I owed Jessica a new pair so I've been trying to get them finished since Christmas was well over one month ago. I'm pleased to announce that Jessica will be receiving her new slippers that fit *fingers crossed* sometime this upcoming week.

That is so sweet and a very pretty butterfly. Look at you knitting up a storm girl! Fingers crossed for you that this pair fits her:)

We should all get butterflies for knitted gifts!

I think it was -16 when I drove Puck to the bus stop this morning (he usually walks, I took pity on him today.)

I love the felted clog goodness. Isn't that pattern crazy? Just one of those leap-of-faith-I-don't-understand-what's-happening
kind of things that turns out amazing. Warm feet for all!
