FO: Pocketbook Slippers
These are the most clever little slippers I've ever seen, and I just HAD to make them. Now I'm going to make about a zillion pairs of them because they'll make great gifts. I've shown a couple of friends, and they want some, so guess what they'll be getting for Christmas!

This is what they look like before wearing, in their "pocketbook" form:


And here is what they look like on. I do have size 10 feet, so they're pretty stretched. My next pair for myself, I'll add a couple stitches to them to accommodate my giant feet:


You can find more pictures and my notes on them on my Ravelry page HERE.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks!

Oh yeah, I forgot to post a link to the pattern. I just assume everyone here is on Ravelry and can get the pattern from there. Thanks for posting a link Jan!
