Really nice idea. Better than slippers because they keep your ankles warm too! Great work!!! Love the colour.

Love 'em!! I just felted a pair last night and they fit perfectly. Do you plan to put soles or anything on the bottom? I bought some of the bumpy white sheets like you find on footed pajamas and plan to sew some on the soles, but haven't gotten there yet. Mine aren't quite dry. I'm starting a second pair for my dh today.

I didn't get anything for the soles. Where did you find the white bumps, if I might ask?

I've made lots of these......Christmas presents two years ago! I just made a pair for myself too. I didn't put anything on the soles, but I did knit them two-stranded. I'm sure I'll wear them out eventually, but then I'll make another pair!!

Ah- You are right, those are very warm and fuzzy!

Babs- I already have relatives hinting or right out asking! Glad I got mine done first! :teehee:

Sorry for the delay in responding, but I was on vacation. This is the site for the bumpy stuff: http://www.save-on-crafts.com/jifgripbrnon.html

Knit2btied, or anyone else, wonder how many sts I'd need for some very small ones for the granddarling? She's two+ and has a 6" foot. 28 or 32 maybe? I know I'm lazy and could just experiment but hoping someone's done this already... I see how to do the length. Mary

mwhite,

Hopefully losnana will have an answer for us! I haven't used them yet...

Best of luck!

Did you use 2 strand of worsted weight and the needle called for in the pattern, or did you change things? I'm assuming that you felted as normal?
