Another Christmas Present…felted wool slippers

IMG_5401
I love Knotsewcute on etsy!  I used their pattern to make my son felted slippers for Christmas.  And yes on the 23rd I was still crocheting away!  He wears as size 14 and the pattern only goes to a size 13, so I added some stitches.  They look like two different sizes here, but they were identical!

They were as long as my bed pillows before I tossed them into the washer several times.  In fact, they were still damp when Sam put them on Christmas morning.

Anyway, big score!  He loved them and they fit!  I made them in New York Yankees colors…his favorite baseball team. 
I may be linking to some of these great parties!

They look so warm and toasty, such a great gift! SO you just keep washing to shrink them down until the size seems right or can you depend upon a specific amount of shrinkage right from the start?
