Those of you on my e-mail list knew these were coming and I could even wait until they were dry to show them to you!
The pink ones are waiting for buttons and both pair are waiting to dry so I can needle-felt a nice design on them.
I hope you like them!
The patterns both came from Fiber Trends and knit up nicely. I will have to make an adjustment on the pattern of the Ballet style slippers, as I do not like the little notch I ended up with. The boot is a little tricky but as long as you pay attention and don’t get distracted I would say that almost anyone could knit these up. They do take over 400 yards of bulky-weight wool so they are not an inexpensive pair to make but the double sole is worth every inch! They are so well cushioned and comfortable. I will be making the bottoms non-slip as well.
Many of my friends and family already want some…guess I know what to make for Christmas next year!
