When i first saw these, i knew that i too was going to fall quickly down the rabbit hole! i ordered the pattern and knowing that i would be casting on a pair for my cousin. we draw names each year for 'christmas craft' recipients, and i could see these resting on her feet. the eldest child saw what i was doing and needed a pair as well, so i decided to do two. they knit up very quickly, pattern was easy to follow and very complete. the challenge for me was putting them together. it became clear during the felting process that my seeming was not aggressive enough. the pink pair came completely apart and even my attempts at re-attaching were unsuccessful. the good thing was the crafted pair survived. i used cascade 220 in deep purple. the pictures show two colors, but they are the same slippers. i was able to find buttons from my mom's button box, so that made these extra special. as you can see, the recipient put them on her feet immediately (they fit!!) and wore them the rest of the visit.
so now, i'm required to replace the pair for eldest child. hopefully i've got the kinks out!
