new yarn and elephant shoes

I've been busy, very busy, knitting elephant shoes....
This is only half of them, the other half are ready to felt. These need a second sole and then they'll be ready to go too. The second sole is a total wrestling match and really hard on my hands, so I'm going to try to do one a day and be done with it. this will finish my Christmas knitting that I HAD to get done.

I might make a couple more things, just because I have the time, maybe a scarf or cowl and some fingerless mitts.

I also got my summer camp yarn this week, (and a little thing that jumped in the cart along with it). Might as well, had to pay shipping either way, right?

The camp yarn is the blue/purple one. The other is "ladybug". Couldn't resist. I'll divide it in half and make a couple of plain toe-up socks. (in my spare time).

This week, I'll be finishing the slippers and felting them. I'm kinda sad to be missing OFF this year, but the schedule just didn't allow it. Maybe I'll try for a class at Madrona in the spring.
