Felted Baby Shoes

image

Like almost every knitter I have an abundance of yarn left from larger projects and can’t bear to throw it out. So I roll it into balls and stash the yarn balls away. These felted baby shoes are the perfect use for left over wool yarn. These knit up fairly quickly…they make a great traveling knitting project. The yarn has to be 100% wool for it to felt properly.  This is what these little shoes look like before felting.

I’ve been told by several people that these little shoes stay on baby’s feet better than most. And they are SO adorable.
