Prime Time October -- slippers
These slippers were the perfect car-passenger project: huge needles and yarn so I didn't have to look at it all the time, super-easy so it didn't require much thought, and destined to be felted so mistakes really didn't matter anyway. I did most of the knitting on the drive between Stuttgart and our new home in Belgium. And in Belgium, discovered only front-loading washers. Sad. So I waited until we went back to Stuttgart for our stuff, and finished them off in the top-loading American washer while we packed the moving van. They really still need a little more felting, but I'm not seeing any progress after several cycles in the front-loader. So I'm calling them done.
