It's hard to be a moose in the season of reindeer.

I'm very excited about the felted clog class I'm taking at the local knitting shop! After just one class, I've already got a sole and a toe, so it feels like it's going very quickly. Another class tonight, another step closer to cushy, cosy, cloggy comfort!
This is what they'll look like (hopefully) when they're done:
Mine are in a rather different colour scheme than those pictured: red soles and cuffs, with a pink main section. I think they're rather funky, and love red and pink together, but the other ladies are rather more traditional, and have labelled my clogs, "Ummm... different." :)
I'll show you're how they're getting on soon!

There's a lot of Danish blood in my family, so we've always celebrated Christmas with Nissemen, the cheeky little red elves who, legend has it, deliver the presents.
This year, inspired by the little Nissemen, I've been making these Nisse houses... just the right size for a passing Nisseman to take a nap in!
They are completely made from felt, with embroidered windows, and stuffed with soft batting that would make a lovely Nisse bed. I'm still finishing the little village, but they should be done in time for Christmas!
