A Pair of Duffers

I’ve been intrigued by this  link on Mousy Brown’s blog for a while, I’m not a big felter, but I do love a pair of comfy slippers and I had wondered “Has Mousy Brown made a pair? What did she think”?

Well, I don’t need to wonder any more, because not only did she post a pair she had made on her blog, I finally gave into temptation and this morning I made my own. Literally, in a morning.

Duffers, before felting at 40 degrees, no spin

I used three balls of Drops Eskimo pure wool which I bought yesterday while I was in town with Debbie and Caroline. I printed off the pattern from Ravelry at 9am and by 4pm I was wearing them! (OK, so they aren’t quite dry yet, but I’m working on the principle they’ll be moulded to my shape!

Thank you so much for reminding about this great pattern Mousy Brown, I hope your slippers are as comfy as they are beautiful.

I’m tempted to say, let’s all have a felt along, get your pattern, find 300m of wool in your stash and make a pair. Shall we?

    I just love them! Is this another craze I’m going to become slightly addicted to?! Half term coming up and inclement weather on the horizon – looks like I may raid the stash pile.

  2. Let’s…I am up for it x
    Weren’t you going to Manchester today?

  3. They are ace – I can’t believe you’ve finished them already! I daresay I can find 300m of wool somewhere in the house!!! Thanks for the link : )

  4. Beautiful! If I thought I could make a pair in a day like you did, I’d go for it–but sigh, I’m not that good yet…I keep practicing!

  8. I am so glad I got you to have a go Tracey! Yours are great – I was the same and had a go while mine were still wet! Like the two tone effect – think I might try that next…..Em xx

    For those of you looking for the Duffers pattern, it is no longer available for free. It can be bought from Ravelry. I understand the pattern was plagiarised and so no longer available online.
