Slippers, a scarf, and mittens

I made slippers for my mom for Christmas from Knitty’s Fuzzyfeet pattern. I think they turned out pretty good and I hope (pray) they fit her. I used Patton’s Classic in Denim Marl 7716 – one skein made the pair with plenty left over. They are supposed to be about womans US size 8 (about 10″ in length). I sewed on suede bottoms which cost more than the yarn I knit them with!

One more Christmas present done is my friend Tammie’s scarf. I love the yarn I used – it was a wool silk blend which drapes wonderfully. Peru Chunky Luxury, color 103. I used the MagKnits Short Row Rib Scarf pattern. The pattern is easy and can keep my attention well enough to finish the scarf. This is the first scarf I’ve ever made! I’ll be making one to match the mittens I made below once all my Christmas knitting is done.

Here’s a close up of it on me that shows the true color of the yarn:

I finally finished my mittens after completing the scarf because my hands have been suffering in the cold, cold weather. They match my jacket perfectly! I used the KnitPixie mitten pattern. I used Patton’s Classic, double stranded, in That’s Pink 77732 colorway. When my friend saw me wearing them, I said “Look! I finished my mittens!!” She said “You made those?!! They look store bought!” :o)

I also made mittens for my sister, Kaylee, out of a verigated Red Heart yarn (I don’t recall the colorway, but it was crazy bright – perfect for her!). I didn’t get to photograph them before the were mailed of, though.
