So, I wanted to make my Daphne a pair of slippers, since I lost one of the cute knit slipper socks I had bought her at Target. A quick search revealed this pattern:

They look pretty normal, right? The pair I made for Daphne, in the small size, isn't so bad. So I decided to make a pair in medium for Graham. OMG, they're so ridiculously wide! DH said they look like swim flippers. I used a variegated green/blue yarn, so that really enhances the whole thing. Because they're already so silly looking, I put a crown-like edge around them so now they're his "'Neptune King of the Sea' flipper slippers". He says they make him happy, so I guess it's worth it! :-)
Sheesh...my feet are 11 wide, and these slippers are just a tiny bit narrower than my foot.
