Uggh Slippers!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We sure did. We learned a new dice game that was very addicting.:) It was just our family which includes Ann's bro and partner, so it was very relaxed. The Turkey on the grill was gorgeous. As I tried to take a picture of it, of course my battery pack had to be recharged. I am going to ask for an extra one for Christmas.

Well, as you can see, Ann's slippers came out UGGGhly. They didn't get small enough, but the cuffs got extra small, so that my son could not even put them on. After tossing them in the yarn room for a few days, Ann got them out and began wearing them! She is such a good sport. I have, of course, began another pair for her in the Ultra Alpaca. The first one is done and I must cast on the second one today. Lesson: do a test shrink for any yarn not used before. Plan: Only use Ultra Alpaca for felted clogs!
I am loving Ravelry! It is a real time vortex. I spent two hours yesterday at work on it and could have been knitting. I already have several friends, including all of you who have read and commented on the blog. And I found a group up at Western WA that gets together to knit and I sent the info up to my daughter who goes there.
In celebration of Brenda Dayne coming back to Podcasting after a looong break, I will anounce the winner of the yarn drawing on the 30th, tomorrow. So if you are new to the blog, comment now and be in the drawing! Have a great day and I will see ya tomorrow! KC

Hi, I have the same problem with the cuffs on those slippers! Now I figured I'll try a lighter color for the cuff. I've read that lighter colors felt more slowly than darker colors. I love the pattern, so I'm going to try this. The current pair on the needes is Chargers blue body with gold cuff and sole, so the answer will come shortly! From:
