Fuzzy Feet

First of all, thank you all for your kind thoughts. I’m doing much better; there’s still a little tenderness but it’s definitely subsiding. This is a good thing!

I managed to take the time yesterday to finish John’s slippers. Just as I was weaving in the last of the ends, Mike stopped by. I love showing friends what these slippers look like before felting. Mike was duly impressed. He was even more impressed when I threw them into the washing machine, felting them while  he was here.

Our tiles are 13" square, just for sizing reference

By the time the slippers came out of the washer, Mike was completely blown away! Now, he’s begging for a pair!

In the past, I’ve done these slippers predominantly in Paton’s Classic Wool, a nice smooth wool. This time, as I wrote before, I used wool I had in my stash. I had no real idea how the combination would felt (I did know it would felt, though). Well, the slippers got fuzzy! Very fuzzy!

Fuzzy!!

While I was processing the photos for the blog, John peeked over my shoulder and commented that they look like they should have eyes!
