Five Hour Tour

It took me about that long to knit these cuties.  They are the Duffer pattern that Linda just had to show us on Thursday night.  I have had my eyes on them for awhile.  Until now, I really have not succombed to the felted slipper thingy.  But, this one I could not resist.

Of course, since I didn't know what I was doing really (a sign that I should not start a new project at 10pm).  I used two strands where I wanted to use three strands and vice versa.
 I used the yarn I wanted for the sole for the top and vice versa.  But, after I came to that realization, I had already completed one and I said what the heck, I'll just do the other one that way too.

This morning I felted it and couldn't resist trying it on.  I knitted the 7 1/2" at the required gauge.  It was a little snug.  I'll try it on again when it isn't so wet.  Worse comes to worse I'll find someone who has a little smaller foot than mine.

I'm not casting on another pair for right now even though I have plenty of Cascade 220 contenders.  But, I will try again.
