Happy New Year’s Eve

I made it outside just before it got dark. The pink is coming - hopefully tomorrow. There should be lots of knitting time tonight. I was never a big New Year’s Eve party person so staying at home is okay in my world.

We received a new yarn this morning.
Kid Seta from Pro Lana. This is a mohair/silk blend, lace weight yarn. It can be combined with or used instead of Rowan Kidsilk Haze and Le Petit Silk & Mohair. I chose colours that were missing from the other companies.

Churchmouse Yarns sent out a newsletter today showing their Family Slippers (pattern free on their website.)

I remember my aunt knitting these by the dozen. 

A basket near the front door heaped with these Family Slippers makes for the warmest of welcomes. Our version of these nostalgic slippers evolved from several versions of the pattern found in every auntie’s knitting bag. We finessed the toe a little, but left the heel in its simplest form. Embellish your slippers with pompoms, tassels, or buttons—or try our split cuff for a preppy, Oxford shirt look!

The slippers are super easy to knit - all you need is 5mm needles and worsted weight yarn that you will double strand.  

They did a bunny version too. Download the pattern

It’s time for dinner (chicken wings) then dominoes and then knitting.

Have a good evening saying goodbye to 2020. I think we’re all ready for 2021.
