Alien landing

Thanks for all the comments about the slippers. I'm not responsible for the design - just the alienation. They're based on the Felted Furry Footwarmers in Stitch n' Bitch Nation. I made the standard slippers, except longer, and them created antennae (3 stitch i-cord) and the snouts (9 stitches in the round, k 5 rows, inc 3 evenly around, k 2 rows, inc 3 evenly around, k 1 row, bind off loosely).

I managed to swing by Joann's this morning on my way home from the dog park and get some eyes and a glue gun. How have I been living without a glue gun? Now I want to glue everything. (Here kitty, kitty.) I intended to get the slippers to the recipient today, but realized that the double-thick soles of the slippers haven't dried yet. Curses. But here they are, basking in today's fairly decent weather.

I just hope they cheer my friend up. God knows I can't stop giggling when I see them.

I honestly did not believe there was a justifiable reason for fun fur to exist but now I see. Your slippers are wonderful! You should post them on craftster if you haven't already, I think people there would really dig them.

They look great, I love the antennae. It's not often something makes me laugh at 6:50 on a Tuesday morning!

It has to be said...Fan-frickin-tastic! I have never coveted a pair of slippers so thoroughly. Where are my keys - Acorn must be open by now...

I'm closing the window NOW before my kids see them and I have to make several pair....
Thanks for the smile.
