|Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Worsted|
With my slippers from last year wearing thin, it was time to dig through the stash and see what colors I could knit up. I have always made them in one color but have been mulling over the idea of using multiple colors.
I had just finished a pair of slippers for my mom in purple, but did not have enough leftover to make a pair for me, so I dug around and found a partial skein of grey that again, was not enough to make a pair of slipper for me.
Now to figure out the pattern, stripes seemed like the easy answer and after searching around and looking at other multi color felted projects I decided to try a fade in fade out stripe pattern. They knit up quick and I had to do a bit more weaving in ends but check out the results.
I was a bit worried that the stripe would be distorted in the felting process, but for the most part they stayed true.
I love them and cant wait to wear them, but first I need to sew on some leather/ultrasuede soles so this pair will last a little longer.
