[T - Jessica gets cold a lot.]
The yarn is a thick and cozy angora/wool blend from Peace Fleece. Thayer's Aunt Ranae sent it in a wonderful early Christmas package (also including Minnesota-produced cheese, maple syrup, and coffee- yay!).
[T - it was a really awesome package! Did you get my email thanking you for it, Ranae?]
For the cold floors in our cabin, I made Thayer a pair of felted slippers. They're knit out of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes. Unfortunately, until I buy some leather soles, these puppies are SUPER slippery on the wood stairs.
[T - Jessica also neglected to mention that they're still about a size 30 slipper. Our front-loading washer is an uncooperative felter, as most front loaders are. They are insufficiently agitating for the likes of felting projects, although the slippers are MUCH smaller than originally. They start out as hats for giants that could each fit both of my feet at once. They've been through the wash three times already. They get to ride again with our next load of laundry, hopefully down to a little snugger size, although I wear them just fine as they are.]
And one more knitted item, if you can stand it. A mini Christmas stocking! Knit from leftover Knit Picks Essential sock yarn.
