Felt Booties, Part One

knit_slippers.jpgThis is my first felting experiment.  Truth be told, it is also the first time I’m actually knitting from a pattern.  It has been a good experience thus far.

The funny thing is, I still don’t know what I’m doing!  I hope that the felting will disguise the fact that one slipper has a “wrong side” out.  It was the first one I did.  I don’t recall doing the second one any different, but isn’t that the way with crafts?  Sometimes they take on a life of their own.

These purple gems will go to our youngest as a Christmas gift, the first to be checked off the ever growing list!
If you’re interested in where I got the pattern from, the book is called Knit It! Felt It!, published by House of White Birches (which invokes a lovely image, I must say).  It’s the Child’s Footies pattern on p.64.

I’m not sure I’ll have them felted by Thursday, but the good news is that the dishes are done so that the sink is available!
