With both feet on the ground again ...

After my luxurious stay at the Krasnapolsky Hotel I landed with both feet on the earth again. Work has to been done, but not only that. Of course I find some time to knit ...  My sister in law asked me to knit some slippers for her.
So we went to the local yarn shop together and came up with a bulky yarn. Looking at my other knits, you might know I am not used to bulky yarn, but after buying some extra big sock dpn's I succeeded.
If you take a good look you will notice they look different. Not only left and right foot, but the left is pointing ahead, the right one is a bit round on top. That's because of the grafting I did. I pulled the left one out (only the grafting part) and did it again. Slightly different, but better, I think.
Besides that I finished one mitten. the other one is now on the needles, to complete the pair. It's the An Enchanting Mystery. The mystery was over before I started, due to some lack of time. But to be honest, I don't mind.
When thesecond mitten is finished, I hope to find some time  to finish some other WIP's. The pile next to my sofa is growing, so time to finish something instead of starting something new!

Warme voeten en handen, dat is wat waard, ook als ze van een ander zijn ;-) Mooie sloffen en wanten!
