Well, last weekend's snowstorm got me TONS of knitting time! staying indoors for 4 days straight is quite an experience!

I knit these slippers from some yarn I'd had as sort of a leftover dyeing experiment. They're fast to knit and SUPER comfy. I'm definately going to make some more for a few friends!

I laid one of my normal socks on top of the unfelted slipper so you can see how hugely giant and funny they look before you felt them!

The earflap hat is from a free pattern from Lion brand yarns. I don't recommend the pattern! But, we are doing an earflap hat class at my shop in a few weeks, and I want to know what I"m doing so I can help. :) I then knit a different pattern (top-down), from some gorgeous hand-dyed silk, but I forgot to take a picture of that. I loved that pattern though, but I think it might be a bit hard to teach. I'm still looking for the perfect pattern....

This sari-silk bag is really cute I think! I love it! I think it will be for my international tote exchange pal. I have one more pattern I wanted to knit up (yes, I know, I need to be quick! i need to get it sent off!), so I'm going to try that, and either send her the best of them, or maybe both. :)
