Goldilocks may have found her "just right"... but she never had to felt slippers.
This gray didn't seem to felt enough and is too big.
That black one felted too much and is too small.
And both of them go under the heading "crafty disasters".
These slippers seemed like such a great idea but were was absolutely cursed from beginning to middle to end!
I have green ones that I also started knitting but I'm not sure I can bring myself to finish them- these two were painful enough. I know it's not the pattern (it knit up beautifully) this has just been "one of those" projects for me.
Even if I could get them to fit on my feet- they are the ugliest things made of wool I think I've ever seen and I wouldn't even wear them just around the house. Never mind give them to people- which is what they were intended for. Giving gifts like this is how you loose friends! (LOL)
I don't know where this one went so terribly wrong... because the picture on the pattern is oh so cute!
The optimist in me says maybe third times a charm, and to go with the green ones.
I'm just not sure my wool psyche can take anymore punishment.
