I know you are all dying to know, “But Johanna, what’s going on with your knitting?” Well let me tell you, the thrummed slipper is coming along magnificently. The sole of the first one is done. The outside, or bottom is the brown side with the yellow v’s. The inside, where the bottom of my foot will go, is the side with the fuzzy yellow caterpillar looking thrums. Next I just need to knit up the foot and then add more thrums to the top of the slipper. I’m expecting coziness for one foot soon. Sadly, since I’m on the road, I had to abandon my slippers for a bit. Thrums are cool, but not travel friendly. I’m hopeful that with a Sunday of football ahead of me I can get the first one done. Then we’ll see if I make the second one next, or make a pair for my demanding daughter first.
One more update on the hat I knit for my friends with the sick little girl. I heard back from them. They love the hat and it fits perfectly. I was so worried, but then a friend at work said, “Of course it was going to fit. It had to fit.”
She’s right. Sometimes fate, or God, or the powers that be make sure that things work out. The hat had to fit. It has been called, “The coolest hat ever” by several admirers. The pom pom is also adored. This makes my heart happy.
There, feel better? You are all up to date on the knitting news…except, there may be another hat in the works. This time for me!
