Felting Before and After photos

I knit this bootie from the books "Socks Soar" this weekend and I'm pretty sure I've found 'the' Christmas 2005 family gift (yes, 2005, everyone gets scarves this year). This bootie knit up sooooo quickly, and I've got dribs and dabs in my stash that will make wonderful striped patterns. I'm really very pleased with how this looks pre felting.

The tail belongs to Stella the kitten.

I'm batting .500 for slippers so far, so maybe these will up my average. Which is better for hats, as you will see if you keep reading.
