i got inspired by my own quick knits post to make these slippers. they looked so fab and rustic for a man like my father-in-law. he’s a maker of things himself. i got his review last night, after dinner. he said the soles are nice and cushy, it feels like walking on carpet.

the yarn is scratchy as can be and i told mike as much, so he can wear socks with them. the knitting on these went fast, and they are knit flat and then seamed, which (as usual) i dragged my feet on. but we got them to him on time, so it doesn’t really matter.
