These are knit in the very first Cascade 220 yarn I bought about...hmm...4 years ago. I've been waiting for a small project as I only had 2 skeins.
Enter these slippers and here you go.
A pretty easy knit I'd say. Why did it take me 2 months...well you know me, other things got in the way. (Funny thing, when I started them, only about under 100 people had knit them...now, over 2,000 of them, possibly more! ) Sometimes the quick knits take me the longest. I love my buttons, faux leather. I do love this style of button and you may see it again sometime on a sweater, if I ever finish one soon!
ETA: Here's the pre-felted picture, huge huh!
Seaming help here! Don't let the seaming scare you!! She has great videos on it. Besides, it's felted, so if you screw it up, who is gonna know! The pieces go pretty quick.
Well, um..I was a wee bit picky on my tab sewing. Yes, I can be a perfectionist at times...what..you didn't know that ;)
They fit pretty good. 3 times through Megan's washer (thank you Megan!) was good overall. Maybe a smidge too short in the toe, but we'll see with wearing. It's nice to have a friend with a top-loading washer :) My dream laundry room will have a top loader, along with my front loader and some shelves, and a bar to hand stuff on outta the dryer, and a...well a girl can dream huh!
