I just finished my first sock and although I did a gauge swatch and measured my foot , it came out HUGE!!. :?? It is even too big for my husdand's extra wide foot! Anyway, I wanted to make a warm slipper type sock, so I used 100% wool worsted weight yarn and was wondering if I could felt it and maybe it would shink up a little to be somewhat close to my foot size. Has anyone ever felted socks before? I guess it would be worth a try seeing that I can't wear it this big anyways.

Thanks!

I have never felted a sock before...but there are patterns out there for felted slipper socks. I guess it depends on how big is too big and keeping a close eye on it.
