Busy, busy!

This was my secret project. Aran Isle Slippers for my partner for Christmas. I had some Oomingmak yarn from Alaska and Graham has done so much for me, I wanted to do something extra special for him. So I made these. There wasn't enough for complete slippers, so I used Cascade Superwash for the tops. The colors complement each other, but the majority of the slipper is so soft and warm. I hope to be able to buy more of this yarn in the future, but at $80 for 2 ounces, I'll need to save lots and lots of pennies!

Alaska was amazing. We had 2 extra days this year, had media passes, and met so many wonderful people and dogs.

Time is short today, but I will post again on that adventure... and I have exciting news next week...
