I have had a knitting project sitting in my bedroom drawer since we moved in last December. It is perhaps half complete, might be just about finished – I’m not sure as I can’t remember what it was supposed to be, but it sits there waiting for somebody to work on it. I can’t remember when I cast it on, but it must be over a year ago now.
As it was clearly not going to knit itself and I have no way of remembering what it was, I decided it was a shame to leave such lovely yarn sitting there without a proper use, so why not use it? About ten minutes of pulling at the beautiful Mirasol Sulka yarn and a trip around the Jumbo Ball Winder later and I had a nice new cake of yarn to feast upon.
I then decided to knit myself a real treat for my feet using this beautiful merino, alpaca and silk mix yarn. I have consistently cold feet, no matter what the weather. Since I was a child my complaints of cold feet have been met with ‘well put some slippersÂ on then!’ but I cannot stand slippers as I like to curl up on a sofa and tuck my feet under me.
So here’s the solution I have decided upon. A pair of soft, really luxurious slipper shaped socks that will keep my feet warm and feet squishy and soft underfoot.
