I am felting three pairs of slippers today. I made this pair for my friend Linda. I used Fisherman’s wool by Lion brand and the colors are Brown Heather and the contrast color is Oatmeal. I tried doing a contrast band in the garter stitch to hopefully raise the felting to look like a strap. It did not work. I will knit a seperate piece to try on another pair for the strap. I felted these in a pillow case because my friend Jacqui sent me an email of someones blog and the felting can clog the pump in the washing machine. UH-OH!!
It took about 20 minutes to felt these to her size. Hope she likes them. I plan to sell these in my Etsy store starting in October.
