That's my story and I'm sticking to it. How else could I explain two weeks without an update?
So, while it's long overdue, here's the latest on completed and in process Fuzzy Feet!
Leah bit on my request for a howler and sent me one to remind me to post her in the next round of updates. What a great idea!
Tori's been busy making multiple pairs, including some she dyed with Kool Aid. Brunswick's Germantown is her favorite yarn, though sadly it's a collector's item.
Alma's pair is being proudly worn by her husband. Lori's are a great shade of blue, though less fuzzy than she expected. She'd also like some advice on how much to felt gift fuzzies? Should they be only partially felted and given to the recipient with instructions on how to create the perfect fit?
Amy would like to know if anyone knows if there are any tables or information that would help to convert shoe sizes into knitting instructions for fuzzy feet.
Kelly's knitted one and is working on her second. But with the knitting time over the long weekend, perhaps the second is already done? MBT has finished three pairs. My personal favorite is the orange and red version. No wonder the recipient loved them! Rachel has some great fuzzies, and some cool felted mittens to her credit.
Noelle has done three pairs at least, but has even more planned for holiday gifts. Her list of knitted presents has me sweating -- she is ambitious as well as talented.
Rebecca finished hers awhile ago, my apologies for not getting them posted sooner. She does a nice job of comparing different felted slipper patterns and discussing the changes she made between her first and second pair of fuzzies.
Susannah is well on her way with both her feet and a career change. I hope she finishes both projects successfully.
Maryse has hopefully conquered her aversion to socks by the process of completing her Fuzzy Feet. Scroll down to her November 21 entry to see them, but don't go too fast, she's made a bunch of other wonderful stuff since then.
But, of all the Fuzzy Feeter, I think Laura deserves special recognition. She's managed to finish her first Neapolitan Fuzzy Foot while recovering from a c-section and the resulting infection, caring for her newborn and her toddler. Go over and wish her well and welcome her new family member.
That's all for the moment. I'm in training this week, so if I get off early one day I'm going to do a big check of all participant blogs.
UPDATE: I forgot lovely Meghan when I typed this last night. She's finished her first pair and they are awaiting felting. Go check out her November 14th entry.
I also forgot to mention Jenny's cool black and orange fuzzies to the done list!
And, what about Amy's? I love Kureyon fuzzies. Plus, she's got a pattern in the winter Knitter's. I'm impressed.
It seems the oversight list may be longer than the original post. My, how embarrassing! In the spirit of full disclosure, I also forgot: Beth, Keli, Susan (who has a loverly new house to pad around in while wearing her fuzzies), Ada, and Dani (who has a b'day on Thursday, please wish her well)!
UPDATE #2: A special apology also goes to Heidi, who I thought I had added to the list, but didn't. This is especially egregious as she's finished three pairs so far.
Goodness, you'd think I'd be able to find things in my inbox. Evidently not. Another reason to not let another two weeks go by before posting any updates.
If I've forgotten anyone else, please let me know and I'll remedy the oversight as soon as possible.
I'm hoping by the next update Laurie, the instigator of this madness, will have finished her feet!
P.S. I'm planning on weekly updates on Monday from now on. But in the interim, please stay in touch and feel free to answer questions that arise in the comments.
