Gift slippers

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.

  1. Hi Maz
    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!)
