Knitted slippers in natural wool

I have knit a pair of slippers for my Christmas guest. I used lovely natural Denman Island yarn from Sandstone Farms. I used a free pattern from Ravelry DROPS Design 131-43.

Winding balls from the skeins using a swift and ball winder.

The almost completed slippers.
