It’s official. I’m another year older and wiser! Had a fun week of surprises. Got the royal treatment, and Grace baked one of her fabulous yummy chocolate cakes. I feel so loved and appreciated. My tootsies are telling me that fall has arrived. There’s definitely a nip in the air and my feet are cold. Time to pull out jeans and sweaters again and find a new pair of warm slippers. One of my grandmothers used to knit slippers year-round, for every member of the family, big and small. They were usually knitted from colorful combinations of worsted wool and the girls' pairs always had a big fluffy pom-pom on them. Silly and fun. I get a cozy feeling just thinking about that. Makes me miss my dear old granny.
Tried to find a pattern or something similar, and was pretty excited to find these (above) instead from Craftsbury Kids, unfortunately, not my size, but darling for a certain grand-daughter. Some cute pom pom peds from PurlBee, that Grace can make for me if she wants (hint-hint) and this slipper pattern, which is adorable. Must give those a whirl when I have some time to stitch again.
