It's addictive. Also, it's fiddly. Yet still, somehow, compulsive. I found this cute little pattern for Magic Slippers (I will try to hunt down the link later, sorry), and I just had to try it out.
I didn't bother with gauge. I got at least one stitch more per inch, and I don't know about the rows, but these are some tiny little slippers!
It's a merino-silk blend that I spun and dyed.
I have a hat that I still need to take pictures of too, it'll probably be July before I finally get around to writing the post for that one....
