I found this slipper pattern in The Knitting Man(ual) and enjoyed the process. I had to make adjustments along the way because my medium foot was not the designer's medium foot. But, all in all, I think it turned out respectably well and it fits. Now on to the other one. I used a 90% wool/10%acrylic blend, simply because I liked the color. It feels good on my foot and that's the important part. I am happy because this is my first wearable project other than hats, cowls, and scarves.
