For a while I had been thinking about either getting Brad some slippers for his birthday or knitting some. After Christmas I had some time to take on new projects, so I found a few patterns and had him pick his favorite one. The pattern he chose has pompoms, but I didn't do that. (It would not have been very manly.) I also made his slippers longer than in the pattern. They are very warm, and he likes them a lot.
After I finished my fall garland I devoted my energy to my Slanting Gretel Tee and blocked it the day before Thanksgiving. I ended up making one more alteration before I finished. I bound off on the neckline sooner than in the pattern because I don't like my necklines to come up over my collarbone.
