Awwwwwwww..... Aren't they cute! It's been a while since I posted pics of the nephews and they are so grown up!!! That's Big D on the right, he just turned 3, and he's hugging (not strangling) his little brother, Buddha Bear, who is about to turn 2.
I am so proud of them - they are both incredibly loving, thoughtful little guys. They're starting to speak Spanish, and each of them can name about 3o different dinosaurs, although their favorite is the Mighty T Rex (with razor sharp teeth).
That's enough gushing for one post. I made their mommy some Fiber Trend's Felted Clogs for her birthday, and they felt very left out. They would steal her slippers and wear them around the house and cry if she tried to take them back. So, like a good Auntie, I made them each a pair.
I was really surprised at just how fast they knitted up. While watching football last Sunday, I knocked out 4 slippers in about an hour and a half. It's a fun knit, just complicated enough to keep you interested, but could still pay attention to the game.
I've painted the bottoms with puff paint for traction, and now they're a happy family with very happy feet. As a knitter, it's the best feeling in the world to know that your loved ones appreciate what you make for them.
