I finished this pair of Thrumbelina slippers at 3:30 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Daylight was fading, and I wanted to get a quick picture, so I put my log cabin blanket on the floor for a background.
Some cats can’t resist things on the floor. Mookie will sit on a sheet of paper, just for the novelty value.
A better picture of the slippers, but not quite what I was looking for.
I finally just put the slippers on the piano. Good enough! I love how Knitted Wit‘s merino roving coordinated perfectly with the purples in the Madeline Tosh Merino. Carole called me to tell me the slippers are a perfect fit. Twice! She’s such an appreciative knit recipient, because she knows how much time and effort go into a knit gift. She’s not a knitter, but she makes beautiful things, including the necklace I wore on Christmas morning.
Did you knit gifts this year? How were your handknits received?
