Returning with some FOs.

First off, the Aran Isle slippers from the holiday 2008 issue of Interweave Knits.

The hardest part of these was remembering to copy the mistakes I made on the first slipper over to the second slipper so that they’d match. As a result, they’re not entirely like the pattern, but close enough. They’re the right size, they’re fairly comfy, and they’ll be well-received.

They’re knit from 70/30 acrylic/alpaca yarn that was frogged from a sweater. Nice soft stuff, but still washable.

Second FO of the day is a hat for my mother’s boyfriend.

It’s just a simple hat, knit from Paton’s Classic Wool Merino, in black. Nothing to brag about. But he said he was looking for a hat, and I didn’t mind knitting him one, so it all works out.

And now, going back to my old ways, I give you a sleeping Jakob.

Before I sign off, though, I’d like to let everybody know that only a week and a half after my beloved rat Sniffles had to be euthanized, our other rat, Silk, was found dead in his cage when I got home from work one morning. Suffice to say that I haven’t been in the best of emotional states this past month…

  1. Aw, I’m so sorry. I promise that Leia will play nicely with them on Rainbow Bridge and not eat them.
