Squared Slippers

I wanted comfy slippers to wear around the apartment and, inspired by a pair of slippers made by Mustaa villaa, I found a pattern for slippers made out of eight squares each. I have to say the knitting experience wasn't the most fun I've had, since I didn't particularly enjoy casting on and off for a total of sixteen squares, and then sewing them together like putting together a 3D puzzle. But I'm quite happy with how they turn out, they certainly fulfill the job of comfy home slippers.

They are made out of Rowan Scottish Tweed Aran on 4.5 mm needles, with a crocheted edge. There is something about this yarn that I'm not completely in love with, although I do like the tweedy colors a lot. Blocking made it softer, but I'm still not convinced I like it in general.
