I already told you about the slippers I made my mom for Christmas, but now I get to tell you about the ones I tried to make my Dad! You can see that the cables in these are inverse from the ones on my Mom's. Well, they also fit much more like socks, which is good, because he's much more of a sock person anyway, and he likes short socks (but not that short). I pulled out the cast on and the ribbing at the top, and then worked in the opposite direction in a 1x1 ribbing for about 15 rows to make them a little taller and fit better. He loves them, too! I'd say so far this Christmas was a success!
PS: These pictures are all from before I changed the ribbing.
