HI all!<br><br>
A few questions this evening-- I found a cute pattern for baby booties, well, they're more like slippers (felted fooshies from Knit Baby) and I was wondering<br><br>
1) Can you felt merino?<br>
sub question - would you want to?<br>
2) I have never made anything in a shoe shape before-- is it hard?<br>
3) There is a non-felted cotton "sock" type cuff -- any recommendations for a good stretchy cotton yarn that comes in solid colors?<br><br>
Thanks!!!<br><br>

Hello,<br><br>
I know the pattern you're talking about. Yes, you can felt merino, as long as it is not superwash.<br><br>
That pattern requires you to use double-pointed needles. If you feel comfortable using them and picking up stitches, you should be fine. The felting hides a multitude of sins. You can buy sock yarn with some elastic in it at <a href="http://www.elann.com" target="_blank">www.elann.com</a>, I believe.
