Right now I'm doing something I wouldn't normally associate with getting read to go live in south India for a while.
I'm making slippers.
See, it occurred to me a few days ago that the floors in our apartment will almost certainly be tile. Winter temps in Bangalore can dip into the high 50s at night, and there's no heating. This = cold apartment in the morning and night, and even colder floors!
Luckily I'd made Zion a pair of knitted/felted slippers a couple of months ago, so he was all set.
Now I'm working on a pair for me. I'm running out of feltable yarn, so mine are going to be mismatched as well. But they'll be light, warm, and take up very little suitcase space, so I love them already!
