I just found a cool pattern from Knitty.com for felted slippers. I talked a while ago about making a whole bunch of slippers in different colors to have on hand for people when they come over, after Edith’s feet got cold one night at our house. These would be fun, and the yarn is $6.70 per skein from WEBS.

Note: I just found another great chart in Lisa R. Myers’ The Joy of Knitting Companion for making socks:

If the shoe size is… then the foot measures about…
Women’s 6-7.5 9.25″
Women’s 8-8.5 9.5″
Women’s 9-10, Men’s 7-8 10″
Men’s 9-12 11″
Men’s 12.5-13 11.5″
