slippers


Here's the first finished work from my test knitting - a very thick, warm and sturdy pair of slippers. Tabitha hasn't decided on a name for the pattern yet, but she's looking for suggestions if you have any ideas. I've used Briggs and Little Heritage in Heather Green for the main colour - which is actually more of a aquamarine blue as shown in the picture. And the darker colour in the recessed waves at the cuffs? Briggs and Little Heritage in Seafoam. I'm very pleased with the subtle effect of the two colours together. Now I just have to work up the nerve to try the puffy paint for the treads. That'll have to wait until this evening.
