I found this lovely pattern for super quick slippers, the Duffers, 19 Row Felted Slippers, by Mindie Tallack (who is super clever). The pattern can be found on Ravelry here.
I had started another pair of slippers, using yarn from my stash, over a year ago, but ran out of yarn. So I discarded the project in disgust :-) So there the yarn and half finished project lay, until I found the Duffers pattern online. The project uses less yarn and I was able to complete the project and wear them within a couple of days. Me happy :-)
