52 Week Challenge

Dear Jane, you have created a monster! This slipper pattern is fun, and leaves room to play, which I did this time. I stuck to the numbers given in the pattern this time, but just had to add a little "frou-frou" Fun Fur. I would guess 360yds. Next time, I think I need to use smaller needles where the frou-frou is, as I forgot that they won't felt as well where there is frou-frou. Wow, that means I knit around 930yds this month! Bigger needles and quicker projects are much gentler on carpal tunnel. :o)

Ok now my next pair of slippers and yes there will be at least three more pairs MUST have some fun fur too. What a great idea. I added some felted bobbles to one pair and was thinking of other ways to dress them up, this is brillant. Now where is that pattons merino wool???

Tank you! I only used the fun fur on half of those two squares, diagonally, which turned out to be a lifesaver, since I didn't have to seam through it at all. Can't remember why I did it that way, I think because I didn't want it to tickle the ankles, lol. I cut out a paper model and labeled the edges of the first and last squares before folding it, then folded it into shape to figure out where I wanted/needed to knit in the Fun Fur.
