The floor of my studio is cold, hard tile so warm and comfy slippers are a must. I knit these from another DROPS pattern, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/156-55-celtic-dancer, and used the local natural coarse grey wool from Sandstone Farms that I purchased from Fern at the Christmas Fair.
|The toes don't match because the pattern was tricky to read and master at that point. But no problem, these slippers serve the purpose of being easy to get on and off and keeping my feet warm on the cold studio floor.|
|The sewn back seam that creates the heel results in a point at the bottom of the heel that is less than ideal. Okay for this purpose, but I will not make this particular pattern again. Back to the previous DROPS slipper pattern for me.|
