FO's of Green Slippers

Got 2 pair of slippers done this past week for Knitwits.

Fuzzy Cuffed Green Slippers

Pattern: Fuzzy Cuff Ladies Slippers by me, made for Knitwits.
Size: Womens 8-10 inches

Yarn: Northern Worsted by S.R. Kertzer, knit with 2 strands held together.
Content: 100% Acrylic, worsted weight
Color: Stem Green

Content: 100% Polyester
Color: Black with rainbow metallic.

Needles: Addi Turbo Circular size 10

Cast on: September 10, 2013
Completed: September 12, 2013

Comments: Nice classic pattern. Knits up quickly, fits fairly good. I did change the decreases. I don't think the author of this particular version is familiar with slanting decreases in opposite directions, so she has just 'Knit 2 together through back loops'. I used Knit 2 together to slant half the decreases the other way so the instep doesn't look funny.

I had quite a bit of yarn leftover, so I've made a larger pair in the mens size.

I have a WIP. I've finished the knitting, but still need to do the finishing. A little doll top.
