Another Pair of Ugly Slippers

It was January. And I was nearly finished with my Christmas knitting. (For 2018. Which, at this point, is pretty good for me.) So, when I got a request in the comments for a pair of the slippers, I promised that I could have them done in a couple weeks.

And then my ceiling rained down on me.

I still have a big hole in my ceiling. But my projects are coming along again. So, I sat down and finished the slippers last week, on Saturday to be precise.


The photos were taken on Sunday.


I probably should have checked to make sure she still wants them. It is getting warm again, after all. But I didn't want to promise a finished pair again without having a finished pair finished. Because, well, tempting fate and all.


It's nice to be finishing things again. Actually, that's the plan for April. I have some projects that have been waiting in the wings for a while that I can spend time on.


Mondays are the days I talk about my knitting (or crochet) projects. Hopefully all will go according to plan.

Do you have your April posts planned out? Did you have anything happen to throw your normal schedule out of whack?

Today's A to Z Challenge post brought to you by the letter...

    1. I guess I'm weird. I rarely wear slippers, even in the winter.

  3. I think they are cool looking and not ugly! Glad you got them done! Since I'm not doing A/Z, I don't have my April posts ready. I'm still trying to think what I'm going to write for my next one. Got a new computer and haven't taken the time to align my camera with it so I can't download pictures of things but I'll get it together eventually.

  7. You rarely wear slippers? You must have good heating! (and carpeted floors). It's too cold in our house to not wear shoes and slippers are warm.

    Pretty slippers - I bet the blog reader will still want them.

  8. For A to Z (or whenever I know something is going to disrupt me, like a vacation) I try to write posts in advance. But I'm only as far as E, which may well stand for EEEK on Saturday. You can't plan for emergencies like ceiling leaks, though Happy to see you doing A to Z. Hoping nothing unexpected this month.

    1. Me too ;) But as I generally blog about my subbing life, catastrophes of those sorts would be a good thing.

  10. Comfy slippers are nice to wear In air conditioning. I love the way yours came out.
    My knitting projects are probably not going to get as much attention as usual.

    2. I'd bet you just need to reload it. But who knows? Mine suddenly is stretched in a weird way.

    1. With a pom-pom on top? That's how my great-grandmother always accessorized these.

  17. I wear fuzzy socks Pretty much 10/12 months!! So I am Pretty confident your client will appreciate your slippers!

    I do have my A-Z planned, and some posts are ready and scheduled, but as every year it'll be a busy time writing and visiting other blogs at the same time.
