Short Row Hell

DSC_0044So this is what I've been doing with myself over the past few days. I made a hat (not shown) last Friday and then I dove into slippers. Above are two pairs that are complete except for the felting. I used a different pattern for these than for the first pair. These are the Ballet Slippers from Felted Knits by Bev Galeskas. These were the source of all the short rows. I'm sure that the result will be nice but making these was just no fun. As I finished off the blue pair I decided that I needed a break and maybe the last 2 pairs of slippers can wait a little while. Then Stinkerbelle came in and got all excited because she assumed that the empty needles meant that hers would be next. Guess what's on my needles now. Yup, more slippers but I went back to the other pattern which has no short rows. In between, I took a break yesterday to make the first mitten from a pair for me. As soon as I finish all the slippers and my mittens I'll fire up the washer for a mass felting. Yay!

Knitting things you don't like is just no fun. Hope it goes quickly!

They do look nice! So what pattern did you switch to? I have Fiber Trend's pattern and would really like to get on those.
