Slippers that are so huge they look like they'd fit a yeti. They weren't terrifically long though. So rather than throw them in my front loader & hope for the best, it was back to the kitchen sink. One hour later, I'm exhausted, & they now look like this:
Sorry for the crappy photo, but as you should be able to make out, they're not quite so big anymore. When they first went into the water, they stretched rather alarmingly (how much bigger could these things get?!) But after a while (a long while) they started to shrink. They are now a perfect fit, but look rather boring. I'm thinking they'd be a good canvas for some needle felting ...

Soon everyone was excitedly flinging a vast range of things onto the rapidly growing sandwich. Fleece, tops, chopped up threads & yarns, marshmallows (cotton balls) & sprinkles (shredded cellophane) all made an appearance. Can't wait to see what they make out of their portions!

I was a little nervous when it came off the needles - it looked tiny. But after a fairly severe blocking, it's 49" wide & 23" long. Still a small shawl, but big enough to be useful.
