Since I had the yarn already and since they were on my original Christmas list for my son and since I have all the time in the world, Tuesday I started a pair of knitted felted slippers!
I love the softness of this Fishermen's Wool from Hobby Lobby. I created my own pattern, adapting several different slipper patterns I have made over the years.
Three strands of yarn and size 10 needles made for a fast project. Sam wears a size 14 shoe, so the finished, pre-felted slippers were ginormous!
My knitting needles look like toothpicks!
Here they are beside his tennies!
They are insanely soft and snuggly! And this yarn felted so well you can't even see the giant stitches!
I may have to wash them again, because I want them to be snug on his feet.
This is what I awakened to this morning...such a wonderful Christmas present.
Just beautiful and so quietly soft!
