[knitting] Mukluks

Bulky house slippers for me:

Blank slippers


I wanted an instant-gratification project for me but these slippers- I can't decide if making a dense fabric with super bulky yarn is worth the wrist pain. The original pattern has you do some stranded colorwork up the leg but I only had the one color of Lion Brand Thick & Quick. I decided to knit the pattern solid and then use scrap yarn after to embroider designs around the leg. I did a little with the misc bulky colors above but that yarn is feltable and I know I'll be machine washing these slippers. I'm going to take out what I've done and re-do the embellishments with Knit Picks Brava.
