Needle and yarn
US 10 - 6.0 mm

Sifu Design Studio & Fine Yarns in Chicago, Illinois

Now that we’ve moved to chillier apartment with cold hardwood floors, Tim is jealous of my cozy slippers. So I’m making him a pair. I feel like it’s going faster than the first pair I made a year ago, but then again, that was one of my first projects ever.

10/30: One slipper down! Even though when I measured Tim’s feet, it said to make the large, I made a size between medium and large and it’s still a little big. I guess my gauge has changed a bit in a year. :) It still will be a nice, cozy pair of slippers.

For some reason I’m having a really hard time capturing the color in the photograph. It’s not quite as blue-purple as the the in-progress pic, but not quite as flat grey as the FO pic.
