Rocking the phentex


Does anyone else wear these? Style maven that I am, these are now my current "go to" slippers. Knitted by my sister-in-law, I wan't sure at first but graciously accepted them. Work horses they are, tough, warm, flexible, and oh so sexy! Pom poms!

I wore phentex slippers constantly for about 20 years and only (reluctantly) gave them up when I needed more arch support. I have found, however, that those pom poms are a magnet for hair (cat, human, or otherwise), dust and grime. So I always cut them off. Neutered the slippers, if you will.

You are stylin'! I noticed that your lilly-whites are neatly shaved and look well smooth and moisturized. What better style than that.

(PS - Haven't done Pexntex for years, but I used to love them)

Hello....these are my favorite slippers, only ones I've ever wore! My current ones are still going strong after 4 years. Made with carpet wool from Tandus in Truro.

I love your slippers and blog!

Knit them, sell them, give them, wear them and LOVE them! I love mixing and matching the colors and "naming" my slippers! I just finished a pair of "Pink Lemonade" slippers made from bright pink and yellow Phentex yarn! I sell quite a few of them too. People seem to love them as much as I do!

My grandmother used to wear those. I think if I saw you in those I would probably curl up on your couch and wait for you to bring me chicken soup. Hope to see you at the market next week.

I looked at some phentex yarn last week but could not bring myself to the point where I could imagine actually knitting with it. But you slippers look so cozy I might have to rethink this.

Yes I had a few of those beauties. They are the most wonderful slippers. That phentex yarn was like steel.
I love the colour, it's my favourite.
