Slippers for Me
First, thank you all for the great discussion about knitting while listening in the comments. This is clearly a topic that’s very important to many of us, so if I do pursue this research project I’ll be sure to share my findings with you all.
When I visited my parents over spring “break,” I took the opportunity to felt some slippers since my building’s coin-operated machines really don’t cut it.
I’m doing a class on these felted slippers at Yarn Harbor this summer and was happy to finish off my sample. One thing that I had trouble with was the seams coming apart during the felting process, so I’ll probably make up another pair or two to find a better seam before the class begins this summer.
Needles: US 15 bamboo
Made for: Me
Timeline: March 15-27, 2011
Worst Part: Seaming and felting
Best Part: They are oh-so-comfy! I’m looking forward to the time when they stop being a shop sample and are only meant for my feetsies!
