New Projects

A good friend of mine and I are trading skills.
She can spin....... and I can't.
So in trade for some spinning...... I am making her something warm and lovely.

Slippers! The first half of a pair of Fibre Trends Felted Clogs. I am finished most of the slipper and am on to the top cuff. Next step is the second sole and then on to slipper two!

These are pretty close to the pair that I knit for myself and finished in the beginning of January. Same colours. Aren't they nice? Patons Classic Wool for the black and Patons Soy Wool Stripes for the main foot. I love how the striping works out. Can't wait to be finished with these so I can get them felted up for her! Trades are where it's at!

I love the Paton Soy Wool Stripes colors and always wondered if it would felt nicely. Please post a photo of the finished slippers!

Oh, that is such beautiful yarn! I'm sure she'll love them. If she doesn't, I wear a size 8.....:)
