I did make one more slipper, though. I was going to make a pair for my son, Landon and one for his wife, Tracy. They live in Washington and it has been VERY cold there so far this winter. I bought some gray and red yarn and was going to make one pair gray with red trim and the other red with gray trim. I got one gray slipper done and couldn't wait to see what it would look like felted so I went ahead and put it into the washer. It came out really nice and fit Tracy perfectly. I went ahead and crocheted the other one but didn't have time to wash it right away. Tracy wanted it to be finished, too, so she threw it in the washer to try and felt it. Well, we learned a good lesson in felting. Don't wash the slippers seperately if you expect them to come out the same size. So... I'm in the process of making another pair of slippers for Tracy. I'm not sure what I'll do with the other pair. Hmm... I wonder if I could find someone with one foot ALOT smaller than the other one.
