The first present...

I gave this season... This is my friend, Gizi. We've met about 12-14 years ago, while, living in FL P worked organizing trips for tourists. She and her family were in one of these trips. We hit off instantly, and I think of her as a very good friend. We don't meet or even talk very often, but when we do, we understand each o ther very well. She is the one who loves and appreciates crafts and handmade gifts. Also she is very patriotic, and I make a point of giving her tricolored things once in a while (the Hungarian flag is red,white and green). Sometimes it is a beaded necklace, sometimes it is a pair of sock...
This year it was a pair of felted clogs...
Here she is opening the package. She knew there will be something handmade, and since it was soft she supposed it was something knitted, but she did not expected...slippers :-)


She tried them on, and they fit her pretty well:


She also liked the embroidery that felted in:

And she said this is the warmest footwer she ever had.

The white and red yarn came from the second hand store (nowhere else it is possible to find feltable wool in this country), the lighter green is a bit of leftover Noro silk garden (from my sprig scarf) the darker one is wool embroidery thread (they sell it for gobleins). 6.5 mm circular addi needles.
