No More Cold Feet

These are easy to make and sooooo very warm. After seeing this post about knitted slippers I knew I had to make some.  I had some wool yarn (wool of the Andes from Knit Picks) just waiting for a felted project.  I went to the crochet version
because I crochet faster than I knit and I was impatient.  It has gotten cold here and I needed to warm up some toes.  The hardest part is folding them into a slipper.  You might need this video  I did.  It took 3 wash cycles to get them felted down small enough for my feet, but they are now PERFECT!  I stopped the machine before the wash water drained out and re-set it to the beginning twice.  After they were rinsed and spun out I put them on wet to form them to my feet, getting a custom fit.
