So the slipper was progressing nicely. It looked lovely, and I’m totally taken with the cable.
Alas the yarn, while beautiful, really isn’t quite thick enough for what I want these to feel like (not the yarn’s fault, it’s beautiful, it’s just not meant to be the bottom of a slipper). So more yarn was obtained, and the next version of the slipper is underway.
Not sure you could ask for a closer match on color, and it looks like it will be a tiny bit sturdier and thicker. The yarn is new to me, but it certainly sounds interesting (and it has the most beautiful halo). Anyone else worked with it?
