Very big slippers

This is my knitting in the evening
Can you see the cookies - Weihnachtsplätzchen (Christmas cookies)
made by "himself"


sitting in the evening and knitting away


the rim in another colour - however it is one skein of wool


Look at this difference - my felt slippers in grey and what I knitted


They are enormous but stay tuned - they will look different when they come out of
the washing machine.

  5. The grey/blue ones are to show the size of my slippers - the size which I aspire to achieve -I am waiting for a bright day to take a photo of the washed red ones....

  6. Are you expecting Giant visitors? Just joking, the washing machine will make the slippers shrink, I'm sure of it!
