Memorial Day projects!

These two pair of Scrumptious Shagged Slipper Socks were started and completed on Memorial Day weekend. They are a *his* and *her* pair given to my in-laws on Father's Day. The paint on the bottom of the slipper is "Dip it" bought at Home Depot. I stuffed plastic bags into the slippers and used a disposable foam brush to apply the stripes of paint. It is rubbery when dry.

The yarn is Cascade 220. Two skeins of gray were enough for both slippers. I also bought two skeins of the blue and the pink. I've got a full skein of the pink left.

The blue are large women size and the pink are large child size. They appeared to fit my in-law's feet ok. This picture is a bit misleading on the sizes. The one pink one is inside out so you can see the shagging on the bottom.

It's a great pattern and a quick knit. I'd recommend these slippers to anyone who would like to walk around on a cloud (with warm feet)!
