Leaves faling by Ray Lambert

Listen! The wind is rising, 
And the air is wild with leaves, 
We have had our summer evenings, 
Now for October eves! 

by Humbert Wolfe (1885-1940)

2 x hygge - 2 x feeling cosy


These slippers would suit anyone really. They were made
 from a discarded sweater that has been rescued and washed many 
times until it became dense enough to cut safely. The sole is cut double also 
from wool for extra warmth and padded comfort as well as adding longevity 
to the slippers. The length of the slippers is 28 cm/11" from heel to toe. 
They're fairly flexible so would fit a slightly smaller or larger foot
