The good thing about spending 6 h a week on a train

is the time freed up for knitting! I finished a pair of fuzzy feet for my sweet husband (I love saying that) and tomorrow I will felt them for him. I made him a pair last year, from Noro wool, and he loved them and wore them until it was more whole than slipper left. This year I decided to make a pair from more durable wool.

I also started on the Retro Handbag from the new Interweave Knits.
I have almost more handbags than I can use, but I love these needles that I bought for no money at all in a second-handshop, and I have been longing for a chance to use them.
Vintage needles are the best, I think. Some day I´ll buy glass ones and try (mostly because they are beautiful) but until then I'll keep buying needles for a dollar/pair at markets and fairs.

We are having some friends over for dinner tonight. One of A:s guy friends has finally found a girlfriend that seems to last, and I am going to meet her for the first time even though they have been going out for five months now. That gives us a great opportunity to try the baking stone by having small pizzas with artichoces, marinated garlic and capers for entré, and trying the new pasta machine and make ravioli with spinache and Ricotta for main course. A made his amazing Tiramisu for dessert so it'll be an all Italian dinner.

(The baking stone and the pasta machine were wedding presents, BTW. I love presents. Maybe we should get married again...?)

I think babies are the next gift giving event ;)

Fuzzy Feet look so funny before they've been felted.
