Pink slippers...

are all done.

Bosnian Slipper socks design by Donna Druchunas
Another lovely pattern from Knitting Sock from Around the World, I still have a few more to go before I'm done with the book.
Just in time for Miss17 to relieve me of them when she visited recently.
The third colour is cleverly stitched on at the end to minimise tangles in the knitting.
Bendigo woollen mills luxury in Lotus and Ghost with the purple vintage Patons fingering detail.
These slippers used up most of the leftover ghost colourway but there is still enough of the Lotus for more socks.
When I saw her again a couple of days later she was wearing them to keep her toes warm. Yay!
The mother added to the yarn stash again last week with some bargain yarns suitable for sock knitting among other things, I need to get some pictures of those.

My blue cable cape from last time has seen significant progress and will soon be done.

Wishing you sunshine in your window.
