Oh, and I had to turn my right foot a bit to try and see the top and button. I do not have giant-right-ankle-itis.
I used a nice purple-ish wool that I picked up in Delaware this past fall and trimmed it in a gray wool that I had in my stash. I am realizing however, that may have been a bad idea. We'll see how it holds up, but I'm thinking washing and drying would be a nice option for fabric footwear. I think the next pair will be acryllic or at least a blend. Or maybe cotton, yeah, that would work!
I've said it before, but something about yarning a gift for a loved one makes it so much more special. Even though these are far from perfect and even a bit goofy looking, they scream "I love you" when I look at them. And what better to have shouted at you from your feet?
