My SLIPPERS FOR LAURA by Melissa Knits are finished. This is my favorite slipper pattern. I have nearly worn my others out. This simple pattern is created on straight needles. I used some Lornas Laces Sport Weight. My other pair is made from Cascade 220 and I wonder if these will hold up as well. Time will tell!
In other knit news, I have started a hooded baby sweater for a good friend’s first baby . It is a girl baby , due in June. I’m using the same Lorna’s Laces yarn that I used for the slippers to knit the sweater . Im using Knitting Pure and Simple’s Easy Baby Cardigan pattern.

I saw a commercial for GOLD BOND Crack relief and I am thrilled someone made this product. We get painful little cracks around our nails in the winter. Have you tried this ?
We nearly had a deer join us for dinner the other night. We have not seen deer in our woods for months. We have seen hoof prints, however. This deer was alone. The next morning we had another smaller deer in the yard. Fireman thinks they are having a tough time finding food in the ice and snow. Today a whole family of deer were walking around our woods and yard. Our cats watch them with fascination through the windows .
I have to tell you that we were invited for a lovely dinner at a friends home last night. Their driveway was a sheet of ice. I LITERALLY got on my hand and knees and crawled to their front door. It was the only way I could be a hundred percent certain I wouldn’t fall. I bet the neighbors had a good laugh watching me!
