BIG Slippers!


This is my latest knitting project. It is a pair of slippers for me.

It knits up very quickly - I like that kind of knitting! It is knitted on size 9mm needles which, if you are not a knitter, will mean nothing at all to you, so I have shown them here next to the needles I normally use to knit socks.

Everyone has had great fun trying on the finished slipper - it doesn't fit anybody!!

Here they are finished (almost finished) beside a pair of my shoes just to illustrate how BIG they are.

Do I sound disappointed that I have knitted them so big? Nope!

Have I a large beanstalk in the garden perhaps? er... Nope!

Here they are inside an old pillowcase and in the washing machine... They are knitted in pure wool and I have set the machine for a powerwash at 50C.

Do I hear screaming? Fear not, there is a plan afoot, (pun not intended) and even though this is the first time I have ever done this, I am confident of success. (Felted slipper kit bought from here).

Ta....ra!


Well that was fun! Now what do I do next? Mmmmmm.....
