Felted Harley Slippers

In addition to the Harley Socks, I've also whipped out a pair of slippers for my Dad.

Ok so maybe not the most exciting project to share. And certainly not one of my favourite to knit. But I've got to say that I love, love, love wearing felted slippers. I hope my Dad enjoys them too. (Although maybe not too much otherwise he may be a 'repeat customer' next year).

And on that topic, one die hard fan is my husband. Last year I made him some in Miami Dolphins colours. He pulled them out again the other day and let's just say they've seen better days.

So I rummaged through the stash to find whatever odds and ends I could use to make a new pair (without breaking my yarn diet). I did find some of the leftovers from last year and added to this some other stash yarn to this to make it go a little further. The end result: a hideous pair of clown clogs! Here they are pre-felting:

But you know what he loves them. And since he's a happy camper, that's all that counts!

Wow, he is a die hard! I like the new ones and the completed ones you knit for your Dad! :)

I like the ones for your dad. They match his socks don't they??

Great felted clogs!

I love the Harley socks, too! I'm glad the "scissor surgery" worked out :D
