Getting Ready For Hibernation

Today is supposed to be the last nice day. Tomorrow, the rain comes, and with it much lower temperatures. It’s time to break out all the cozy hand-knits.

Oh, who am I kidding, I did that back in September!

My son seems to be much like his father, though. I put socks on him, because his toes are cold and 30 minutes later, he’s all, “Mama, help!” and “Socks off!” I can wear my felted slippers pretty much all day and still have ice cold toes at night. It must be nice to always have warm feet!

Even though he doesn’t want to wear socks for long, I still made him a small pair of felted slippers, like I said I was going to. I hope he gets some wear out of them, especially since the coldest weather is still ahead of us.


This photo is of pre-felted slippers. I felted them on Saturday and they’re just now dry. When Jellybean wakes up from nap, I’ll see if I can get him to wear them long enough for an action shot.

I finished my last commissioned project for Christmas 2014 last week and I’ve settled in working on the knitting for my gift list. I have one project finished already – I finished that one back in July and I’m proud to have been thinking ahead like that!

I’m hoping to also squeeze in a little jacket for Jellybean. He’s wearing the one I made him last year, and it still mostly fits since I made it really big last year, but it’s getting pilly and felted from drool, so I want to do another. With the cold weather coming up, I may focus on that first.

Well, I’m off to do some of that knitting I need to do. Have a great week!

  1. I’m not looking forward to the cold weather! I’ve already had problems with what we’ve had. Love the little slippers for Jellybean. Hopefully, he will wear them when the weather gets colder.

      We got them on him for about 30 seconds this afternoon. It’s supposed to get really cold later in the week, so we’ll definitely have the chance to try again.
