The Post Christmas Post

Hope everyone had a happy holiday season! While we missed our families in Alaska we had a good, quiet Christmas and New Years. Lily and Rudy especially enjoyed having a tree in the house although it was a constant battle keeping them from tearing off branches to chew on (good thing they’re cute!)

Last Christmas I made Lily her own little stocking so this year I thought that I should make Rudy a matching one.

He wanted to eat it and run around with it in his mouth so I guess he approves of it.

Other than the stocking my main Christmas knitting project was a pair of felted clogs for all the parents. The pattern is Felted Clogs by Bev Galeskas. I knit them in worsted weight Wool of the Andes on size 13 needles and then felted them in the washing machine. Before felting they were huge. This picture has one of my shoes on the left for comparison.

After felting they looked like this: ( I forgot to take post-felting pics of the pairs for my dad and my father-in-law)

The maroon colored pair was for my mom and the teal color for my mother-in-law. The black and orange was for my dad who is a Flyer’s fan and the green and gold pair was for my father-in-law the Packer fan.

Happy New Year everyone!
