Hopsalots - Finished

I recently got back into knitting and for those out there that can do more than one kind of needlework I am sure you find yourself torn between types of projects to work on. I am currently designing a blanket to eat up all the left overs from a previous project and I am loving the results so far but ai needed the needles that were in use for my Madge and Padge slippers. When I was younger I had a pair of pink bunny slippers which I named Madge and Padge. I must have had them for at least 5 years and I am pretty sure they are dust bunnies now under furnature at Moms house that will eventually turn up one the these days. So in honor of those favorite childhood slippers I just had to knit up these guiys and finish them to reclaim my needles!

They are felted out of Debbie Stroller Stitch Nation Full O' Sheep, In color Peony. The original Madge and Padge were not quite this bright and way more stuffed but alas these are super cute and warm! The yarn just did not want to felt for me in fact I had to put it in the washer three times to get them to the right size and I have big feet! it was my first fitted felted project so the fact that they fit at all is a blessing! The pattern is available on Ravelry and it's called Hopsalots just in case anyone else is up for a quick and fun project!
