Climb Every Mountain, Swim Every … Swimmable Thing

31 12 2006

Ok. Perhaps some of you remember my spectacular failure (see the mutant red slipper below, it’s the red blob with the purple ring) with felting my mother’s pair of Fuzzy Feet for Christmas. Then I rejoiced with my success. I then finally was able to knit something for myself. All for me, the first thing I knit for myself. Well, that’s what I get for being so selfish. They were a bit too big, so with the helpful advice of some fantastic knittys, I re-felted them. And now my beloved slippers might fit one of my guinea pigs, if she left half her foot hanging out. Uh-huh.  Here they are, pre-ultramegashrinking.  I don’t have to heart to take a piggie footwear picture.


Luckily, I am test-knitting a pattern (Me! Can you believe it? Ok, it has nothing to do with talent or ability, it has everything to do with stalking a particular blog I love so much, stalking the right place at the right time) for SLIPPERS! It’s destiny, fate, kismet, karma, luck, I don’t know. Anyway, back to work.




Oh, and the beans you see around the Yorkshire Pudding below and the general filth, that’s what happens at Chez OLPP when I cook. Havoc.

Please feel free to replace put for PUD, sorry.

I have fingers that are the same shape as either cumberland sausages or bananas ( no apalogies for the spelling on this last bit)

See what I mean now about feet/ankles looking incredibly humongous when people photograph themselves?

And yes, that was a huge pudding, (pud is a rude term for male private parts, Ed), and it was unfortunately rather … thick and a bit bland. There’s always next Christmas!

Hm, I’ve always heard pud in reference to female parts. But that’s neither here nor there.

Awww, you weren’t able to catch your slippers in time to save them from ultrashrinking? Maybe they’d make a good G-Pig bed now?? (Just trying to keep it positive!)

And check you out–test knitta!!

Go you test knitta!! 🙂

You just must have some super hot water there!! Wonder if you washed on a shorter cycle or something, maybe your felts wouldn’t felt so much..geesh, all that work, I feel for you! Don’t give up..make a bag, then it can just be whatever size it needs to be!

Bezz – we say Pud too, for our girlie bits.

And P.S. We eat Havoc at my house quite frequently.
