There is no end to the slipper making. I just have to embrace my fate! My brother-out-law let me know he wouldn’t mind another pair a while back, and perhaps he rigged the family Kris Kringle, because I ended up with him as my Kris Kringle. I knew what to do.
It’s the ever popular Fibertrends Felted Clog pattern by Bev Galeskas. Knit from Bendigo Woollen Mills alpaca blend, which works extremely well.
Here they are, knit and ready to sew together.
Sewn and ready to felt.
Partway through felting at 65C.
Ready for recipient, just in time for our departure!

are you putting something inside the slipper to stop it felting together? (sorry if you’ve said this previously, but I can’t remember, old age!)
No, it seems that isn’t necessary. Hand shaping once it leaves the washing machine is needed but the knit parts felt together splendidly and the rest hardly sticks. Ingenious!
