For those of you who are new around here, Stacey and I met through my very first swap (the color red swap). We weren't paired up but she stalked over to this blog anyway and joined on in. After getting to know each other a little bit we decided to create our own little color swap where we created a package of each other's favorite color. Poor Stacey only had to work with that I'm totally a fall baby and don't really have a favorite color but love everything about fall (including the colors!). Stacey all picked up on that I wanted to make a pair of felted slippers, so she so thoughtfully sent along goodies for a quick knit up of one of her favorite pairs.
These babies knit up fast - one the morning of the Superbowl and the other one over the course of two nights. Honey was sure that I was knitting for the Jolly Green Giant!
After several cycles through the washing machine (mostly due to the fact that I chose to knit for size 10 rather than 8 for my size 9 tootsies) I now have a lovely comfey pair of slippers to keep my tootsies nice and toasty. Good thing cuz we're due for snow again this weekend. I will, however, need to stop by after work this week to pick up some suede soles so I don't slip and slide on the hardwood floors around here.
