I am very excited to have finished these. Yay! These slippers fill me with sunshine on this dreary day.
I began these fun, felted slippers last year at Squam when I met the ever lovely and talented Melynda Bernardi. Melynda designs under the name French Press Knits, where you can find all sorts of lovelies, including the pattern for the slippers, my favorite little leg-warmers, this adorable hat/cowl combo, and more. The slippers themselves are a quick knit, perfect for a Saturday afternoon project. The pattern is easy to follow, and don’t let the felting scare you. It’s very doable. When we finished felting the slippers, the pieces still had to dry overnight, hence their departure in an unfinished state.
Below are the lonely, albeit cheery, contents of the bin from the Finish Fifty stack.
Honestly, I think these slippers are going to be some of my favorites in this chilly, old house and especially in muddy, wet Baltimore where you really MUST take your shoes off at the door.
