Elfies are a Big Delight (I hope)

It’s starting to get a bit colder and I’m still resisting putting the heating on at home as that seems a sure sign that summer is over. However, as we’ve got wooden floors, my feet can get a bit chilly so my weekend project is to rustle up a pair of these Elfie Slippers by Drops Design.

The knitting looks simple – all garter stitch – but the construction diagram looks interesting and I’m intrigued to see how they will work out. Once made, they are felted in the washing machine to make them super cosy.

They’re knitted in Drops Big Delight and I’ve chosen shade 03 – lovely subtle shades of brown, beige and green – for my first pair (I think these will make great presents). I’ll keep you posted on progress………
