Megan's new slippers

When my parents were here a few weeks ago, my mom brought a surprise for Megan -- hand knit slippers! Grandpa decided to be silly and told her they didn't quite turn out (see how big they are?)

Above, Megan holds her new slippers as she poses with her mom and Grandma Karen.

Below, are the finished slippers!

See, they fit after all!

I'm not sure if you can tell from the photos, but the slippers were designed to be felted. That means that they are knit with shrinkage in mind. Megan and Grandma felted the slippers together that night and now they fit Megan perfectly!!! Megan loves her new red slippers. Thank you Grandma!
