I have not forgotten you. I know it's difficult to believe, but I promise you, it's the truth.
I have been knitting up a storm, but lately, the "wool fates" have been working against me in a big way! Pictured above are two pairs of clogs. I made those for you. The first pair (the smaller of the two sets) shrunk when felted, but not enough. In addition to that, I wasn't wild about how the two fiber colors blended and said, "Not small or pretty enough. I'll make her another pair."
I made the second pair and loved the color (the photo doesn't do them justice). I have boiled that rat bast*** pair for hours, with and without baking soda (to soften the water), to no avail. They refuse to shrink any further.
In a nutshell, your slippers are running far behind schedule and I APOLOGIZE for that. I have ordered a wonderful yarn that I know will shrink to the appropriate size (having used it before). I'm waiting for it to come in and as soon as it does, I will knit it up and get a pair of woolen slippers out to you. My only consolation during this whole process is the thought that it's very cold where you live and you might actually still get to wear my slippers this season.
Also photographed is Liberty's contribution to the project, a mauled needle!
