Drama after drama on this one! I ran out of yarn on the second one making the medium size. Then ripped them both out and made the small size. Then still ran out of yarn on my third outer ear. Aaaah! I’m now making the ears out of a darker grey handspun because I refuse to rip these booties out a second time.

My gauge isn’t super loose, so hope it still felts up okay. I’ll just handfelt them in the sink at home.

11/6: Finally felted these little jerks last night. It took about an hour and a half of me squishing soapy hot water through them to get to the right size. When they dry I’ll do the cuffs and embroidery.

I made pompoms out of the darker grey yarn to kind of tie it in together. I put the poms at the top of the back to cover up some wonkiness, but maybe they make more sense at the base of the bootie. I used all 6 strands of embroidery floss for the face. I kind of basted an outline of the nose, filled in the satin stitch then pulled out the outline.
