Our school district is closed this week for winter break so I had plenty of time to finish my little Mary Jane Shoes for my friend.  These will go with the hat I made in the previous post.

  I found the pattern on and it was a free pattern and I was a little afraid I wouldn't be able to knit them without a lot of frustration.  (I consider myself an intermediate knitter, and usually lean towards easy things to make.)  Much to my surprise, these turned out to be a very easy pattern and all in one piece and took very little time.  The yarn I used was baby cashmerino by Debbie Bliss.  A wonderfully soft yarn and so nice on my hands to knit with.

So  now, with these projects finishsed I can go back to a wonderful sweater I started before Christmas and on to my next favorite things which I found at an auction this past weekend.  I think the auctions are going to be my Saturday night dates.  I've gotten some beautiful silverplated silverware with serving pieces and some wonderful vintage hankies I have yet to iron and a tray full of Vintage Catholic jewelry and medals etc to polish and clean up.  Pics to come later.

Thanks for visiting and giving me the encouragement to continue.
