I think they're too big...I thought the pattern was not specific enough and the circular needles I bought at Walmart were bad and snagged the yarn every time I pushed it onto the needle and the yarn had several knots in it where they joined it.....not a good project for me anyway. I also think the hole where you put your foot is a little small. I'm not even sure I should gift them.....Brooklyn Knitfolk knitted several pair of these and they all looked 'normal' using the same pattern and she's been knitting less time than I have but I think she's knit more in that short amount of time. Plus, I don't think she uses cheap needles or cheap yarn! LOL! I am a slow knitter too so although it was said it was a 'quick' project.....it wasn't for me and I still need to sew on the 'slipper grippers'. You can't win them all I guess but it certainly threw my knitting confidence out the window!
For those of you who only read my blog on Sunday's, I will share the really cool acquisition that I got in the mail this week..............my Blue Sky Fibers 21-color slouch hat...YAY!!!!!
I have waited awhile but it was well worth the wait.....I want to cast on but I shan't.....not now.......but the yarns are scrumptious and hopefully with great yarn, a great pattern and some good needles I will be able to pull it off. Plus, I now have their entire range of colors in their new Woolstok worsted range which is 100% fine highland wool. (Blue Sky Fibers used to be called Blue Sky Alpaca)
with her podcasts. She knits, sews and more. I also found 2 inexpensive pattern books for crochet and knitting for the Kindle this week....there are more on Amazon but not necessarily this cheap............these were .99 each.........free if you have Kindle Unlimited....there are more Kindle books on sale in handwork and every category so check them out!
