Last year I was excited about making something comfy, cute, and warm to wear on my feet in the office. This is not what I envisioned.
THESE THINGS ARE HUGE! And so laughably bad! I should have known something was wrong when I had to wash these things about about 4 times just to get them to really felt. Was I paying attention to the yarn gauge when I made the substitution?
It turns out I wasn’t. I said: “Hey! I have some feltable yarn in the stash! I’ll just use that.” And I ran with it. What a beginner mistake! *slaps forehead* And that’s how I ended up with my feet looking like they are being swallowed by a pile of felted fabric.
I will give them credit for keeping my feet warm and my socks from getting dirty, but I have plans to try these again. And with the right sized needles and yarn this time.
