These have been described as ugly. If they only knew they might cry. So sad. Perhaps they are just too dark, but they won’t show dirt!
Read about my goals for these hand knit slippers in Felted Slippers for Fall. The person that was gifted these says that they are warm and very comfortable. That means I’ve met a goal! No lumps or bumps or seams in an uncomfortable spot. 🙂
I am not happy with the toe shaping. One person I checked with said the toe should be more square. Another person said it should be more rounded. What’s a knitter to do?!
Both people surveyed said they’d like the slippers to have a cuff added to them. That’s easy enough to do. If I keep the toe shaping the same and add a cuff then this pattern may turn into boot liners.
I couldn’t find the right color of yarn for the next pair of slippers. So that gives me some time to think about how to do the toe shaping differently. While I think I’ll knit something else.
