LMKG #12: French Press slippers.

Thanks to OregonOkie on ravelry for this LMKG idea (and thanks, also, for that No Fail Roast recipe you posted in the "Less Cooking, More Knitting" thread - yumm-o!).

Check out these cuties. Really, who could buy store-bought slippers made in Taiwan when you've laid your eyes on these sweet little French Press Felted Slippers?

The pattern (and the photo of the taupe slippers up top) is by Melynda Bernardi, and is available as a $7 download, here. (The pink slipper photo is by Elven). The pattern calls for 300-330 yards of worsted weight felting yarn. Some suggestions:

Cascade 220 Wool (NOT superwash - two skeins)
Malabrigo Worsted (two skeins)
Lamb's Pride Worsted (two skeins).

Thanks Loops Lady for the shout out on the slippers. They are a breeze to knit and felt and talk about warm!! Hope everyone takes an evening to get them made. Worth the time!! Love my Loops!! Brenda
