Felted slippers

I stumbled across these little gems while reading Yarn Harlot. I thought they would make perfect gifts for my mom and my mother in law for Christmas. I had never felted before but thought that it couldn’t be that hard.

The slippers knit up fairly quickly and the felting wasn’t bad either but I think I took them out too soon because they ended up being too big. So the size 7s I made for my mother in law were given to my mom who wears a size 10. It’s ok though….my husband’s side of the family doesn’t really exchange gifts so it worked out.

Yarn: Paton's Classic Wool - I lost the band but it's obviously a light gray

I do plan on making these again, for myself of course! I have some robin’s egg blue wool and some scarlet red alpaca blend that are begging to be knit. I just can’t decide which color to make….

  2. You are ridiculously talented.

    I'm going to come live with you until you teach me how to sew and knit and kick Martha Stewart's ass!
