You really make me want to finish my felted pillow top. Did you have a pattern for the slippers? Recycled wool? Love the idea on L's vest. Clever girl.

my own design. Yes, finish your pillow! do. Are you more than half way? Of course it may be hard to get excited about knitting with wool once it gets really hot... I'm using wool sweaters run through the washing machine; they never fray, they are stretchy, this fabric is really fun to work with - I collect moth-eaten sweaters; pass it on.

The top is complete and ready to attach to some fabric. That's about the time I lost interest.
I noticed at thrift stores they don't have sweaters out this time of year. That means yard sales.
Fun visiting with you at the picnic yesterday.

I can't begin to tell you how many projects languish near completion like that.
I recently got out an almost finished project that moth had gotten into - tragic. Let that be a warning to you -take heed!
