Shrinking Slippers

Well, well. These started out as lovely Pocket Book Slippers that I loved wearing. Unfortunately, they shrunk in the wash since I didn't pay attention to how to wash virgin wool. Ah well. Better luck next time.

Materials:
  • Schachenmayr Nomotta Sympatic
  • 4 mm straight needles
This is a great first project, requiring knit and purled stitches as well as increases and decreases. It is a very satisfying knit since you can finish the slippers in a day or two and wear right away. They are also quite comfy - unless they shrink. In my experience, they make great gifts in the colder seasons (so three quarters of the year over here) and are always welcome.
