Lifetime Award and Payment for Dinner

It's been a few days since you all have heard from me around here... and for good reason. Maybe I'll go into all that in another post in a little while. Right now I'm just interested in posting a few FOs and then going to lay down for a little while. First up is an over due knit for a dear friend from WW who earned her Lifetime Goal a while ago. I promised I would knit her something but never quite figured out what it would be. I finally decided on a great pair of felted clogs but then took like forever to get the yarn and cast on. But I'm pleased to report that they are now ready to be awarded to a very deserving lady. Here's Chris's Lifetime Award Slippers... These are of course Fiber Trends Felted Clogs done up in some Patons wool in a bright blue (although not as bright as this photo is showing) and a chocolate brown. She's got small feet so I'm going to have her try them on to see if they need to be felted down a little more before adding some skid-free stuff to the bottoms.

Another lovely lady from WW made a sweet deal with me last week and 'traded' me a few home cooked dinners for a knit scarf. Sarah just happened to have some, brace yourself, acrylic yarn in a colorway my friend loved and Sarah was looking to off load. And so I present what I'm calling Ora's 'Salt 'n' Peppa'... I'm linking both of these FOs to their Ravelry reports for further details if you're interested.

In other news Sarah is celebrating her quarter of a century... Happy Birthday Sarah!!! Here's a quick pic of her and a friend who flew in for the special event. Love that smile!!! And as a final note (cause I'm starting to get stiff and the pain is coming back again and I must. lay. down.) a little something I had sent to myself this past week from The Loopy Ewe. Gotta love your dpns something special right???

Your clogs look like they felted beautifully! I hate knitting up that pattern, but someone who made their lifetime goal deserves them. :)

Oh the scarf is really pretty, and I have had those clogs on my list for like.. 10 years. Someday I'll actually get around to knitting some! Many hugs to you, hopefully the time away wasn't for the bad.
