Another reason was Christmas Gift making. I made DH, Son and Daughter Fleece Robes for Christmas. I was planning on making the kids slippers and DH socks. Well, I got daughter's slipper finished(she almost four so they didn't take long to make, started son's slippers and started DH socks. Didn't get them finished in time. I'm still working on slippers. Didn't realize how big my 11yr old's feet were.
