The booties are quick and easy to knit, to be sure. Even though I knit the second pair to test my technique, I still couldn’t decide when to stop on the right side. Fortunately, when felted, they did pretty much look the same. 🙂
Delightfully for me, and thankfully for my dry, sensitive hands, my washer does work for felting. Though it is a front-loader, it will pause and allow me to open the door. Additionally, the heavy cotton cycle is perfect timing for felting . . . at least for this project!
I prefer the bulky yarn for these booties, but the lighter-weight yarn makes for a nice, lighter, more flexible bootie. Both have an almost elvish quality to them.
There’s one more installment on the booties, because even though they are felted and dry, they’re still neither finished nor fit to be worn by little tootsies.
