This is my 50th post!
in case anyone thought i slipped off the face of the earth, i am, in fact, still here! my knitting has just been terribly boring lately, so i haven't had much to post. on the needles, i have the slooow going mon petite chou, miles of black stockinette for kellen's sweater, and some plain stockinette socks for me.
tossed a curve ball into my projects last time he was over. he said he wanted slippers. i had already bought the mandatory Orange and White
to make him some fibertrends felted clogs back at christmas, but he insisted he would never, ever, ever wear anything knitted
. i finally talked him down to admitting he might wear something knitted at home, if it was really cool, but never in public
. that was in december, and i had dropped the subject thinking he'll come around eventually. like when he's 40.

i'm off to felt them today. we'll have to see if he actually wears
