A new FO

Here they are folks, the felted slippers from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
So, you are probably thinking "Wow, she is proud of THOSE? They look kinda funny and a little big. Does she have a Sasquatch?" To that I reply, 'No, silly, they have to be felted.'
"Felted? Whatchu mean felted? We don't knit. We were here before this became a boring knitting (and sometimes crocheting) blog. Whatchu talkin bout Willis?"
'I know, I know. I've got pictures. Not only do I have pictures, I have pictures of HER wearing them.'

They could probably stand to be felted a little more. Perhaps I will later (basically just washing them in mucho hot water).

And, just so we can tell the left from the right easily I added this sweet little embroidered detail.

6 people are laughing with me:

Very cute. I crocheted some booties for my husband's niece, but never thought about felting -- very clever. Of course I was guessing size, which I suppose you can't do when they're snug. I think she needs some more, mama!

So Cute! You have been making the coolest, cutest things!!! I want to learn just so I can make myself a brown hat like you made your sis, or was it your aunt? Those little slippers are so cute, almost as cute as Sweet pea!
