I started knitting slippers in mid-November, and noticed hat my slippers were worn out. How difficult is it to knit selfishly for oneself? Well, after 3 pairs, I started on these. All mine!
The pattern: Felted Slippers by Midnattsol from Midnattsol's Blog, women's (medium) size. Used US#10 needles, 19 stitches wide blocks. Pre-felting size: 13 inches long; Aprés Felting: 9 inches.
The Yarn: Classic Wool Merino and Classic Wool by Patons Worsted / 10 ply 100% Wool, Merino 223 yards. The Classic Wool (red) felted more than the Merino (blue) not really distinguishable in size, but the Merino has a softer, more flexible texture.Even without the finishing soles in place, I'm enjoying them. Truth be told, I can find only one of the soles...Bring on the cold!
PS. I cheated... I tucked in the pointy toes with a few stitches before felting.
