This was my sister's Christmas present this year (lucky girl, two hand-knit Christmas presents in a row!). Fuzzyfeet, which I poured MUCH work into. I dyed the wool myself, using Fruit Punch koolaid. I then knit the slippers. I realized that I'd made a mistake in the heel turn of the first slipper, so I knit the first one twice. After all that they looked boring, so I picked up all the cast on stitches, and added about 8 rows of the yarn plus a purple varigated eyelash. Then I felted them (mostly) by hand, although I finished the felting in the washing machine. Phew!
