alpaca slipper socks

I Just finished these Arwen slipper socks from Tabitha's Heart designs out of our friend's 8 ply alpaca and love them so much I'm going to knit another pair immediately so I won't be without them during the cold storm we're having now. I knit the heel on a smaller needle since my foot is so narrow and grafted the toe at 16 sts instead of 12 to fit my foot better. First sock knit with 2 very stiff circs. UGH. 2nd sock knit one needle size larger with KP options and magic loop. Pure joy. Wonderful slippers and a fast and easy knit. Christmas gift knitting to begin soon. :)
