Here is the completed foot of Joshua's Norwegian Star slipper. I am using 2.25 mm Addi Turbo 40" needles and my knitting thimble with this Cascade 220 Superwash yarn in the Puget Sound and black colorways. It is a bit much to be knitting almost worsted weight yarn on sock yarn size needles, but it is necessary to make child size slippers. I realized after I received the yarn that I could have used sport weight instead, it just did not occur to me when I planned this project.
I have started the foot part of the second slipper and will then pick out the row of blue yarn between the heel and the foot to knit the leg and cuff sections of each slipper. The edges on this slipper are a little wavy and some blocking would be in order, but I will likely mail them as soon as I complete them. I had the foot turned inside out as I knitted to improve the edges, but this might have been a situation where dpns might have worked better. Justin and Joshua will outgrow these slippers, which will not become heirlooms, and the sooner I finish them the sooner Joshua can wear them.
