Yarn Along - One Present Revealed

22 December 2010
Ginny at Small Things is hosting a Yarn Along each week. Since I'm in one of my knitting phases right now, I thought I'd join in the fun.

Do you remember that pretty oceanic blue yarn last week? This is one project I can now reveal!

Marianna's birthday was on Sunday, she's sixteen now! Among other awesome presents, she received her very first Momma knit items - slippers! Living in the tropics, I've never bothered knitting for my husband or daughter before but this year has been so chilly, just like last year (I checked the Almanac) that I finally cast on and knit her some slippers that should be perfect for all those long nights sitting at her desk studying, studying, studying. They're soft and squishy and so very warm!

The pattern was a fun origami slipper pattern from DROPS design that entailed folding a bunch of linked squares together until, presto! a slipper emerged! Quite fun. :)

I'm still reading Coldwater at night before crashing into sleep. It's developing into quite a Gothic novel, which would only be appropriate considering whom it is about! After all, you can't discuss Gothic fiction without mentioning the Bronte sisters' novels, can you?
