The waiting game

Well I was planning on talking about what was currently on my needles today...but last night I finished up the first of my new pair of slippers:

I followed this gorgeous old pattern:

Will be casting on the second one tonight and once I finish I think I will use the lace up finish on them...although I would love to do the shaggy pair on that pattern sheet above!!

It's unexpected I know after I went on about how I never finish anything - my fellow AADC members will be disappointed....but more true to form here is a photo of the pile of wool awaiting assignment...luckily only two people usually need to sit on our 3 seater couch as 1 seat is permanently occupied by a pile of wool and a couple of loose needles.

This is only the wool on the lounge I have many other substantial stockpiles in the craft cupboard.

i love the slippers - we need to have some quality knitting time so we can share some patterns - I want to try the slippers, socks and learn DPN's!

any trips coming up with an afternoon to spare?
