Notes

It took 2 washings to felt them down to size, and they fit my 6.5 feet perfectly!

I needle-felted the embellishments on them, per the instructions. I think that adding the fringe would be courting disaster, with three very active and playful cats in the house.

I would recommend doing the preliminary cast-on in yarn that is NOT the same color as the yarn you will knit with. You’ll thank me later. It was very difficult to unzip the cast-on when the yarn is the same color.

I discovered that I’m not nuts about duplicate stitch, but I like the results. I do like needle felting, so embellishing this was fun.
