So before Christmas I posted this picture of my half finished knitting as I didn’t want to reveal what it was and spoil someone’s Christmas surprise.

Several people had a go at guessing but no-one got it right. Now I can reveal that it was…

… a pair of slippers for my Mum. They were knitted on large needles using two strands of yarn together, then felted in the washing machine until they were the right size. I think they went down very well :)
