What size needle did you use for the adult ones? I bet it says it somewhere, maybe II'm overlooking it. Thanks!!

Spooky.. I think that I used a size 4.5 mm

I'll look on my converter.. to give you USA sizes.. (the needles that I use are MM-- so, I've lost my USA mental conversion of needle sizes)..

OK, 4.5 USA = 7 (a size 8 would be fine too)

I just make them a little thicker (use a little smaller needle than you'd use to make a garment out of the same yarn) than you might knit a garment out of the same yarn.. does that make sense? So, they are strudy, warm, and able to stretch more- if needed.

I'm creating a new slipper design right now- I think they'll look great and are UNLIKE any that I've ever seen anywhere.

I have about 4 inches done on one of them- but, won't have time to knit until this weekend.

Thanks! Enjoy them-- I'm working on a new slipper design.. it might take me awhile to get it finished- but, I hope to get 'at least' ONE FINISHED this weekend. It's something that I've thought of doing for awhile.. :D

My favorite stories are: The first one (OCT 8) Mystery Spice, 72 years, the mushroom story, ... so, let me know what you think.
