What is this monstrosity???
A giant slipper from Noro Kureyon that I will knit then felt.
Can you see that I'm running out of yarn??? Uh-oh!!
Perhaps I should have tried harder to get gauge.
Perhaps I shouldn't have extended the cuff by an inch.
Luckily, I have this purple yarn in my stash that I think would make cute purple toes on both of my slippers. (The Kureyon skeins are slightly different colors.)
I'm thinking of knitting the toe with two strands for durability and because the purple seems a little thinner than the Kureyon.
All of you experienced knitter/felters.....do you think that will work???? Adding in a different yarn? Knitting with two strands of that yarn??
I could always frog this and keep the cuff the right size, so then I could eke out enough yarn for the toe.
Starting this project last fall
Even though my LL Bean slippers are on their last legs, I repaired them so I got another winter out of them. (I sound confident that spring is here, even though we've just had one sunny day in the 50's. (10-15 C))
I'm more confident that I'll have these slippers done for next winter!!
