Over the past year, I've gotten a lot of requests for felted (technically, it's fulled) tabi from runners, but I've been kind of loaded with a few large custom commissions. This time of year is the time of year where I should really be working on cranking out huge numbers of socks for the holidays, but it's always the time of year that I get itching to perfect some new designs. This time, it's going to be these felted tabi, so rejoice all you runners out there. :)
I've been a bad blogger. Seems like every time I hit a lull, life decides to get exciting.
The past few weeks have been better, and I've had more of a chance to get some knitting done. This week, I decided to do some instant gratification projects and worked up two pairs of fulled slippers. Awhile ago, I knit my first pair by bungling a pattern, and they're so much fun I made up two more pairs.
These have slightly higher sides, making them more clog like, which is a bit more practical if you're doing more than just sitting around. They're super thick -- about 1/4" on the sides -- and the bottoms are doubled for extra squooshiness.
I decided that I needed a pair of slippers and thought it would be a good time to knit up my own pattern. Well, I got distracted near the end of the pattern and ended up with elfy slippers! I was a bit disappointed, but the more I wear them, the cuter I think they are.
