knit n felt

My knitting needles have been beavering away on making these for Christmas gifts....




I've lost track of how many pairs I've made over the past few years and some people are on their second pair already.  I'm told that they are very comfie and warm, but I have yet to find out for myself.

What's that they say about a mechanic fixing everybody else's car and not his own?  Guess I'm like that mechanic!

Pattern is the felt clogs from Fibre Trend.

Hey MA..these look so neat. I really must get that pattern. Maybe I will have some done in time to inflict them on unsuspecting family members by next year! LOL

Well these certainly look comfy! Wish that I could knit...If you tell me where to find the pattern, perhaps I could persuade someone to make me some. LOL!

I was just at a knitting gathering last night and one of the women came with two pair of these. They look wonderfully warm. I may have to try them...after the holidays! Merry Christmas MA!!!

These look very comfortable. I wear slippers all the time around here but with a rubber sole.

Would these be slippy on the tile floors? I could use something else to knit besides the scarves for the Special Olympics. Getting scarved out.
