Apparently these slippers are addictive. I can't seem to stop myself. Is it that I want to use up lots of my wool stash (so that I don't have to pack it) and that this pattern lends itself so nicely to doing that? Is it that I need a distraction from packing and looking for a place to move? Is it that they are so quick and easy to make (so quick that I can make a pair before I can even finish watching Bleak House)? Or is it just that I find them so fun and cute? I don't know. Probably all of the above. Whatever the case I now have four pairs knitted and just need to finish with the buttons and weaving the ends in.
And...I have a feeling I will be making another pair tonight so that I can finish Bleak House.
