Despite it being midwinter, the nasturtiums are growing in full force along our street - I had to take a photo of their glossy green glory when I was waiting for the bus the other day.
And in somewhat unrelated news, I wanted to show you these slippers I made. Each one took an evening - and they're very warm and cosy. They're for Keira, and tomorrow i plan to attach some leather scraps to the sole, for non-slipperiness and longevity. She's also gently suggested that colourful pom poms would be a stylish addition.
I used this free and fantastic pattern, along with a ball of alpaca yarn I found at the op-shop.
A friend in Norway had a basket of these in her house for visitors to wear, so now of course I want to do the same...
