Slippery

The first slipper is done. It is HUGE! I hope that the Lambs Pride felts as well as people assure me that it will, because this baby needs shrinking by a hell of a lot. Knitting the sole on was interesting, with three 9mm needles on the go at once. I used my Denises and one straight needle and managed ok, although it made my hand ache so quite slow going.


This is the Lambgora. It isn't at all like how I would expect lambswool and angora to be... stretchy. Also very soft and so pretty, I think this colour is called Ocean Swirl.


And this, of course, is Cadbury, who was worrying the strap on my camera while I was taking the other photo so I snapped him too.
