Finally. Finished knitting these Ballet Slippers for mom. Now I can go on to felting them! This will be her second pair of handknit, felted slippers, made by yours truly. The first pair were made for her a few years ago as a Christmas gift, and she’s already worn through (go mom!). She wears them a lot, loves them. I didn’t knit a double sole on the first pair, this pair has definitely got a second/outer sole. Built to last.
I was on a roll with this project and knitting them up fairly quickly, until I got to making the outer soles and knitting them on to the inner sole. Then I just lost motivation and they got left waiting for me to just focus and finish.
The progress and final product.. You could fit a newborn baby inside each slipper, they are big.
