Toastie toes

No sooner were the slippers off my hook and the ends stitched in this evening than they were on the feet of Mr Snail of Happiness. Please excuse the poor pictures, but it’s dark so I had to use a flash:

  3. Do you have to put anything on the bottom – something grippy – so he is not skating on the polished floorboards?

    Reply
    • I haven’t treated the bottom, although I do have a tub of liquid latex for exactly this purpose, but Mr Soh thinks it’s not necessary – the only polished boards are in the kitchen, everywhere else is carpet. We’ll see how he get on!

  4. They are very attractive. Can you slide on the floor with them (intentionally, for fun)?

  7. Very cosy looking, and I particularly like the green cuff to make them look less, um, corporate! Will yours be identical, or with a different cuff so you can tell them apart? Pink would perhaps be too obvious, if very fetching!

    • I’ve run out of the black yarn, but have some of the green, so mine will mostly in that… I want to have a go at making the toe to match the cuff with mine, just to see how it looks.

    • Ooh no, I’ve changed my mind over a cup of coffee… combination of plain black chunky yarn and a strand of self-patterning sock yarn looks really good. The black wool is not as hard-wearing as the stuff I knitted Mr Snail’s slippers out of, but the strand of sock yarn should add strength… but better get on with some paid work now and earn a crust to feed my yarn habit!!
