Felted would be cool! I think I'd start by increasing them by a third or a little more and a bigger needle. With the stuff I have felted so far, stuff seems to shrink by a 1/3 or a little more...but it depends on so many things, I think it would be a bit of trial and error at first.

These socklets would be great to wear with thong sandals! My LYS is closed today! What will I do?! Oh, yeah, I have to finish DD's shrug by Sunday. Now I'm motivated to finish so I can start these. Thanks, Kemp, you're fabulous!

computer woes
Ok, I'm back! The lightning storms Tues night knocked my computer/modem out and it's finally fixed.

Well to update: I started doing this cutie the other day and worked all day on it. I decided to do the MEDIUM size coz I'm a size 8 shoe.
I was using #2 needles. Got up the next morning and started to continue, but tried it on again. In the clear morning light I found it was way TOO BIG coz these things gotta hug your feet snugly to stay on. So I RIPPED THE WHOLE (tiny) darn thing and started over doing the small size and smaller needles (1 1/2).

duh. thought these would go really fast but on such small needles it's just not true! I think I'd like to try a big chunky yarn next time and big needles so they do knit up fast and they'd be cute too....

Next Progress Report to come....

P.S. Sara.... I've been going through bunches of shrug patterns looking for a simple but cute one. What are you doing?

Well, its Thursday now! Is your LYS open yet I am making a trip to mine today. I think these would be really cute in the Opal Petticoat that I used for these baby socks. I have almost the whole ball left, but from what I understand this color may be a limited edition, so I think I should have another on hand since I like it so much.

What shrug are you doing? I haven't been able to find one like what I have in my head, so I am designing one instead. I am still on the lookout though for a fun pattern! I have the prototype for the arm/shouder, but I am starting again with some modifications. I am trying to do the whole thing in one piece. I think it will be fun/challenging/a pain in the $*^%#*??? Hopefullly I can figure it out before the end of the summer.

Vic...I can't wait to see them! It did seem to me that they would go fast too, but those darn sock needles

Kelly...those are awesome! Can you imagine the looks one would get in those? Might be good though...people might think they are so unusual that they want to order them.
