OK OK. So I decided to adapt a knit picks two at once sock pattern into a felted boot pattern with DISASTROUS RESULTS THUS FAR.
There is the ravelry link for the project with my notes about it. but so far I hate these they look stupid, like giant mittens or something else. . . . .
Anyway may frog these and use the yarn for beer cozy's, felted boots for real, fingerless gloves even. .
