Feministmama: I used worsted. That's what the recipe called for.
And, by the way, it's at www.Knittingatnoon.com
and it's the "family of slippers" But there's a more detailed description at www.knitty.com

Beldaraan - that's what my daughter just suggested to me - re some kind of rubber bottom (so she can wear them outside).
I've never done anything like that and don't even know what it is or how you do it. But you'd have to put it on after the felting whatever it is.
Let me know if you do it. Oh, and I have slick tile in kitchen and large hallway and am not having any trouble with sliding yet. But you know how kids are - better be safe.
