Rolling Hills Slippers
I actually made a pair of duffer slippers for myself to take on vacation next week. They are amazingly comfortable. I used Rolling Hills Wool of the Andes Bulky from Knitpicks and the buttons are from Joann's Fabrics. My personal opinion having used 4 different yarns for all the slippers I have made, is that the knitpicks yarns felt the best and tightest making a much better sturdier slipper. I can now tromp down to the free breakfast buffet in slippers instead of shoes! :)

Those are actually three buttons stacked on top of one another and sewn on. I found this card with three sizes that complimented each other and was going to use just the biggest one, but it was so flat so I super glued them together making sure the holes lined up then sewed them on as one. I think the effect was cute. Glad you liked them.

What fun to make a pair of slippers for yourself in a lovely color combination. The stacked buttons are a terrific choice.
