Slippers and Scarves and Warm Things! Oh My!

They are done!  I have deemed it so!  They are perfectly fuzzy and fabulous and I love them.  So There!  I'm not going to add on the straps that the pattern calls for, and you can't make me. (Though I still might put on the buttons.)  The originals are supposed to look like this:
The straps I made came out too wide, so when I place them on top of the slippers they cover too much of the toe section.  It just looks strange.

I'm now working on a scarf out of a blended yarn that contains bamboo.  It is SO SOFT.  The knitting is going slowly because I keep stopping to pet the section I already have finished.  : )  I'm also going to attempt to make a hat to go with it.   Because of the softness of the yarn though, I'm not sure how well it will hold a shape.  It's very much a gamble, but if it works it will definitely be worth it.

I'm also still working on the snuggle blankets for the pet shelter.  My cat is "helping" with this by attacking the yarn ball whenever I go to work with it.  I think he might want one for himself too.

I say leave off the buttons. When you cross your feet they just hurt your ankle. Am I getting a pair for Christmas?!
