Well, at least it's handknit
Aren't these slippers beautiful? They were hand knit by a farmer's wife in Albania. Every year the community club (think PTA) at my daughter's school holds an auction to raise money for the school. I won these little beauties for just $8! Apparently I'm the only person there who appreciates knitting as a fine art. I'm thinking of having these framed and hanging them on the wall, they're so nice.
My own secret knitting project continues apace. Progress is being made, but this week has been kind of slow. Last night was a special reward dinner for my husband and several of his coworkers, plus their wives, at Ruth's Chris Steak House. It's hard to knit while you're stuffing your face. The food was good, but boy was it ever BIG. I had triple chocolate molten cake for dessert and I think I died and went to chocolate heaven. Yummmmmmm.
