Take two

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.
