Happy Mother's Day!!

This update is especially for my mother who waits "patiently" for pictures of projects.
So first off the slippers are sewn together, ready to felt.
yes, there are a couple ends to sew in, but they will be thrown in the washer within the hour.

Next, the never ending blanket that is at a pause as I decide how to proceed.
I didn't really like the mitre squares I was going to attach in those empty areas, so I'm thinking either use my circular needle to mitre two triangles in... or use double points to fill it in. Currently the double points are being used for a secret project.The boyfriend is a HUGE Tigers fan, so I'm working on a hat for his birthday. The problem is he has a big head (7 5/8 hats) And I'm not very experienced with color work of this type. The first hat was much to tight for my testers, and actually fit me the best! So I'm working a bigger hat now (when's he's not around) and trying to be looser about carrying my yarn in the back. I may just have to sew the design on top if this second hat still is too tight.

Another picture of the 12 Days:

Two more pieces, nearly ready to attach.

Love you Mommy, hope you have a good day!

quick note

thanks to my wonderful mother, I'm taking the class. In one session I was 4-6 rows away from all the pieces to a complete slipper!! I'm taking the yarn with me to work so that if I get a break I can get going on the second one.

Pictures to come Monday or Tuesday when I'm not working a double...
