I started some slippers for my dad (Christmas knitting in July) at the end of June. I finished the first one on Sunday night. They’re pretty good, I think. It’s hard to know if they’ll fit, though his feet are only half an inch longer than mine so I can guess based on how they fit me that they should be alright. The yarn I bought is enough to do five slippers. I’ve decided to do three for him (so he has a spare) and a pair for myself, but probably in a different pattern. I don’t know if I can bring myself to knit five of the same pattern without going insane.
Anyway, here’s the first slipper.
And completed slippers!

This also marks the beginning of my Q3 Challenge knitting. It feels great to get such a good start on it. The rules were to knit an unfinished gift, start and finish a new gift, and knit something for yourself. This is probably the easiest of the three parts, and I’m probably making it more of challenge than it needs to be, but I really don’t want to have any leftover yarn lol.
Now for my sock. I am trying to decide whether to keep knitting or to Frog. Go take my poll!
