Fuzzy Wuzzy slippers.

Don't ask me why I'm knitting so many items that won't be worn during these warm months. I need to knit something and I prefer wool. These slippers were my first attempt at knitting humongous socks from the cuff down and at felting. They're like Shrinky Dinks. I knit up some huge socks and then threw them in the wash and they stiffen and shrink up.

Project: Fuzzy Feet by Theresa Vinson (knitty.com)
Yarn: 2 skeins of
Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky that I won in a contest
Colorway: Grey Heather
Needles: US 13

btw, to answer the comment you left on my blog, i found the website for the work exchange. it's called woof or wooff.

i definitely will consider that in the future! but after working two jobs (one full time, one part time) and grad school, i need a break from work.
