Hurray! The Fuzzy Feet are done. See them here in all their glory (yes I know one is bigger than the other; I'm hoping that felting will help to solve that.)
I showed them to my husband last night when they were completed and he said, "Who are they for?" I think he thought I'd started to date a caveman on the side. I then had to explain the felting process, at which point his eyes glazed over. Oh well, can't expect everyone to love it this much!
Word to the wise: it is generally not a good idea to wait until you have about 20 stitches on DPNs to join new yarn. You get Attack of the Yarn Tails while you're wrestling the porcupine. Not fun. However, if you defeat the Scary Tails and the Dreaded Porcupine, you will feel a great sense of satisfaction, hence the title of this post.
Hurrah, hurrah! I am so happy to have finished these. Now, it's off to cast on for the Felted Bag project!
