The knitted slippers are done! Because I used a multicolored yarn (see TattingChic's post for an explanation of the difference between variegated and multicolored) they don't quite match, but I think they go together, and I'm happy with them. The soles are sheepskin, so they won't wear out quickly the way socks do. I bought the soles ready-made at a local yarn shop.
It was so thrilling to find out this morning that another one of my Etsy items got chosen for a Treasury Showcase! Click here to see the treasury - as usual with these, it's only up temporarily, so the link only works for a while.
