For the love of SWS

I love SWS. Just got my shipment to day from Yarn by the bag, they shipped on Wednesday, and it was here Thursday morning, you gotta love that. This yarn addresses all my favorite knitting things. It's smooth, silky, tactile heaven when knitting. It felts like a damn, and the colorways are dynamite. Too bad it's a bit on the expensive side, but this time I lucked out, there was a sale....

So I keep making these slippers/Crocs inserts, fun and fast, basically a sock without a leg on 6mm needles using the yoyo heel. They shrink to 1/2!!! But in the process I found a new trick to me, when drying I thread some cotton around the rim and pull tight. Makes a very neat edge and tidy. I blow a balloon inside the slippers to keep them nice and round. Here are the 2 latest.
