Elf Slippers

Pattern: Elf Shoes by Pamela Wynne
Yarn: Cascade 220
Needles: US10.5 Brittany DPN
Notes: These are very quick to knit and awfully cute. I needed to go to a friend's house to felt them (Thanks Amanda!) because I could not get them to felt thoroughly in my front-loading washer. I got Plasti-dip at my local hardware store to (messily) paint the soles to make them non-skid. It's not too pretty but it seems like it will do the job well. I hope they fit the recipients.
