On the needles

A little bit of blue sky peeked through the clouds yesterday as I came out of the eye doctors office with extra dark glasses on and I couldn't enjoy the moment.  After so many grey days I expected to hear the alleluia chorus with the blue sky.  There's more blue sky today hallelujah!  but that means its going to get cold again.  Its winter in South Dakota its supposed to be that way and it does no good to whine or complain.  Its good weather to knit!
It looks like a need a knitting intervention with all I have knit in the last couple weeks.  I knit a couple more pair of the duffers slipper pattern  I love that pattern but I need to remember to bind off really loose or the cuff can be too tight after it is felted.  The other pair are Monique Rae's slipper pattern for guys.  Only a couple more inches and the socks will be done in plenty of time for son's birthday and four fingers and thumbs left on the gloves.  Linking to Judy's OTN staying warm in hand knits. --Ann--

Your needles have been clicking away! Love the slippers. And your gloves are going to be beautiful. I know it's winter, but I still complain about the cold. Give me 90 degrees any day. :)

Oh my goodness - you are a knitting Goddess. I want to knit Duffers. Added the pattern to my favorites. So many projects, so little time.
