WIP- I must be insane
yes, it is true. I've never felted before And I must be some kind of crazy to take on the Mukluks pattern in last months interweave. But I must have them! I am almost finished with one mukluk and I am looking forward to seeing how it comes out. The pattern called for Foxy which is too $$ for me, so I am using... what am I using?? Plymouth Furlano. Well, this is what it is supposed to look like. I hope mine look somewhat similar

That's the closest I could get from the interweave site.

I couldn't find another picture anywhere, but reading some knitting blogs I have discovered that many people find these not so pretty. Huh. I know I iwll love mine, though!

I think those are cool! My mom has some mukluks that she got years and years ago that look similar to those. Hers don't have the bright colors, but they are still beautiful.

I am not sure... It depends how they come out. Right now I am worried the foot part is going to be too small- everything else around it looks huge!

well, I finished one, and it's in the wash right now. I know I should wash them both at the same time, but I honestly think the foot is messed up. I don't want to go through another entire slipper to find them both unwearable. The pattern was not altogether clear for the foot part. I should have asked, I know, but I am impatient and just plodded ahead. :rollseyes: . Only a matter of time, now...
