New Slippers

 I have been working on felting slippers with Matt-Garn and another wool called "Quebecois" which is a bit lighter. The two pairs shown above are both the same number of stitches, both on size 6mm needles with 2 strands of yarn, but the Matt-Garn ones are definitely larger.  They all still need buttons sewn on to the straps for decoration. 
This is the evolution of a slipper:
1. Knit them big
 2. sew up the ends
 3. tack down the straps
 4. wash with hot water in the machine
5. put on your feet


  1. love the slippers, although i might add one more step to the process prior to number 5:
