quick magic

Please note that this week E and I are taking a break from our respective offices and, as much as we are able, from computers. If your comment requires moderation I’ll get to it soon.

While it’s the nine days I’m refraining from knitting, spinning, and crocheting. I am going through my queue and stash and trying to make pairings which please me as much as my pomatomus do. I found a new use for the very small scraps of sock yarn lying around.

and they are magic.

Magic Slippers by Caroline Dlugy-Hegwer
knit 20080725
Yarn: 9g Bernat Sox in Crazy Hot

These are for a co-worker whose baby girl is due in September. They are “newborn” sized and fit in my palm and were an insanely fast knit with fingering weight. I love how the sole striped and think they are just absolutely adorable. I also knitted her some 4" square wash cloths because I heard that’s a good size for parents to best torture their little ones with.
