Felted Slippers On Ravelry - Project for 10 Feb.

Hi Stitchers,

This is the pattern and materials that you will need for our ‘project’ on Thursday!  I hope some of you do this with my sister, Lori, Ann, and I :)  If anyone doesn’t have to time to make it to the yarn store, let me know, and I’ll pick something up for you…

Felted Slippers

by Robin SmithPublished inAngel Hair Yarn Company

Craft Knitting Category: Feet / Legs → Slippers

Yarns suggested - Yarn weight: Bulky / 12 ply (7 wpi) Gauge2.75 stitches = 1 inch in Stockingette

Needle size: US 11 - (8.0 mm)

 This pattern is available for free.

Instructions for sizes: Child’s medium, women’s small, women’s medium, women’s large/men’s small, men’s medium, men’s large.

In addition:  This is what LORI WROTE:

I used 3 balls (50 g/50m) of the Lana Grossa Feltro purchased at Strickeria.  This made a slipper for a size 35/36.  You can use any bulky weight wool, but it must be  100% wool to felt.  Manmade or plant fibers, i.e. acrylic and cotton yarns, will not felt.

Other materials needed:  Size U.S. #11 needles (8mm)  Yarn needle for sewing the slipper together

I traced my foot on a piece of paper and measured to get the length.  You will need to know how long your foot is to make the slipper the correct size.

Get ready to get your stitch on!

It’s that time of the month again Leute… We’ll be meeting next Thursday on February 10, so let’s all try to make it out. 

Same time: 19:00 - whenever

Same place: Vitus Restaurant

In 2011, I have some new and exciting plans for us. They include themed meet-ups, more projects, and some special guests. For this upcoming Thursday, I have asked Lori, if she wouldn’t mind guiding us through a simple knitting project.  We decided on booties/house shoes. This is a very elementary project so don’t feel intimidated.  If interested, check back in a couple of days to see the list of supplies, and if not then bring your own project!

Keep in mind that Valentine’s Day is approaching, so remember those loved ones, or treat yourself.

P.S. If you’re curious as to how the booties might look then here’s a sneak peak!  And this it is made with felted yarn…
