(They are slightly different because I’m trying to use up stash yarn and ran out of one color towards the end of slipper #2.)
I think they turned out great! They felted down nice and hard after about 20 minutes in the washing machine.
Still too wet to wear, though. If the rain ever abates, I’ll set them out in the sun to speed the drying process.
In other news, I’ve been working on some very pretty Huey singles-
And Sheep Prep continues. Two weeks until we bring Franklin and Felix home!
I almost can’t believe it.
For a cute action shot of Felix from a few weeks ago, go to Tina’s blog!
I have a pair about 3/4 of the way done that have been sitting in one of my knitting baskets for at least 3 years now…
Maybe I’ll rip them out and start over ~ I have NO idea where I left off in the pattern…
I do recommend that you take another run at it. I’m not really one for following line-by-line patterns, so it was a bit of a challenge for me, but they turned out so nice that I think I’m going to make a few more pairs!
I luv that second pic haha! I must buy that pattern someday as I have been wanting it for ages.
OH hurray!!!! You must be so excited about your little ones coming home!
