Knitted and felted slippers and soon to begin a baby dress

The Christmas Gift I made for Johan was a pair of knitted and felted slippers. I used a yarn containing 80% baby alpaca and 20% silk and I knitted after a pattern on garnstudio.com (see link to the right). After that I put them in the waching machine in 60 degrees and with detergents with no enzymes. The result is really good actually. They ended up really thick and fitted Johan perfectly. I also sewed on a button.

This is how it looks like in different stages:


And here is another picture of the result:


After that I have not done any more knitting actually. I was supposed to start a cute dress for Olivia but I got fatigue the day after Christmas Ewe and was just sleeping all days long. I went up in the evening around 5-6 pm every day. Och then she arrived 1 week early. I gave birth to our little daughter 30th of December. So now I have been taking care of here of course. Not much sleep and time for anything else. I have not been knitting in 2 weeks but i will start as soon as it gets a bit calmer and easier with everything. It is so new for us. I am breastfeeding a lot during nights so there is not much energy left for other things. I have to run an breastfeed now. But as soon as I have more energy I will start on this cute little dress.
