Progress

The slippers are now about half way there and just for you (!) I braved the wet slipper to take this progress pic.

I think another turn or two through the wash should do the trick. They really do feel thick already (you make a double sole) and I think they are going to turn out ok.

I was feeling a little glum over the weekend and slightly jealous of all the yarn fondling taking place at Woolfest, so I decided to cheer myself up with a little shopping. I have one parcel waiting for me at the post office and looky what else arrived today!
I think it's the purdiest thing I ever did see.

I think there might be a spelling error in your yarn description. Ahem.

The slipper looks to be comming along very well indeed - what pattern have you used, btw?

And yes, I've been compensating for not being at Woolfest by making a yarn purchase or three! Love the Posh yarn, my favourite yarns at the mo...

The slipper looks great, felting is so unpredictable so I am glad it is right. I wanted to go to Woolfest too. Never mind, one day1

Is that the Fibre Trends pattern ? I STILL haven't done mine :( I really have got a lot of kintting to catch up with :( and yet I keep buying yarn !! I blame my rather large yarn stash on folks like you for showing such a beautiful skein like this one;) Still I did do rather well as you know at Woolfest so you deserve a treat or two or three or....
