Pictures of finished stuff

Here are the "all felted up and in use" Hubband slippers. Well, they still need to have some stuff painted on the bottom to keep the, from being too slippery. That means I have to ask my information source what it is that I am looking for again.

Just in case you needed the other "scale" identifier, here she is. Perhaps not quite as cute of a picture as last time, but I am sure I will have more to put up in the future.

I did indeed finish my socks on Sunday afternoon. Well, upon wakeful inspection I discovered that knitting when you are falling asleep is not always the best choice. I am missing a few random purls in my seed stitch rib, but decided I wasn't going to go back and fix them. Of course, if they were for someone bedsides me, I would.

I even had some yarn leftover after my socks were all done. (For the record, I think the whole measuring process would work with a regular kitchen scale if one didn't have an electronic one like I do.)

I have also finished another face cloth for Posies & Lemon Drops, this one is a DW, but again in Cottontots.
Not much else on the knitting front, (other than that long question and answer session posted below), but I am guessing there will be in the not too distant future.

The felted slippers turned out great! I attempted a felted slipper a while back, but it didn't turn out. I might have to try it again. :-)

I love the colors in the socks! It almost looks like the swirl goes across both feet. What do you think of that yarn? Isn't it nice and sqooshy? :-)

Caulk, as I recall, is what Judy uses.

Or any kind of liquid rubber/puffy paint/spray on rubber would work... I keep meaning to make a pair of those...

Actually, I prefer to use two to three coats of Plasti-Dip (or Tool-Dip) from the hardware store painted on the bottoms. I have used silicone glue, but I've found it doesn't have the longevity that the tool dip does.

Love the socks. They look comfy and warm.

I like the DW pattern too. I've made one cloth using it and plan to do at least one more...in my spare time, of course. :)

I am going to try some spray tool dip for my mom's second pair of slippers. All I have left is to seam the bottoms and felt them. Then do you wanna have a spraying party?

The socks look great!
