Isn't there something about slippers....

I am sure that there is a tradition about leaving shoes or slippers out at night and finding them filled with candy in the morning, do you suppose someone will fill these with truffles while I sleep?

My first version of French Press Felted Slippers. Let me tell you that felting them in the kitchen sink with a potato masher was not fun! I think that if I am going to make more (and I probably will!) I will find a new best friend with a top load washing machine.

Stats: French Press Felted Slippers
Yarn : Patons Classic Wool in Dark Grey Mix
Needles : size 15 (10mm) bamboo circulars
Finished size : women's 6/7 ish shoe.

How much more knitting do you have to do before the big day?

Love the slippers and someone is sure to fill them with truffles. Oh and you are welcome to come and use my top loader as long as you bring your own water:)
