I’ve been spinning fairly dense these days so this project was a great way to use up some of that wool, and make long-lasting slippers! (Plus it was super easy). Here is a link to my Ravelry project page for the pattern and more info.
To make them a bit more durable, I cut out a piece of leather for the bottom and attached with shoe goo for extra slipper-y goodness. I found the fit wasn’t perfect when I took them out of the dryer, so I cut a wedge out of the top and added a button and button hole.
Some in-progress photos. All you have to do is knit an ‘L’ shape, stitch up the sides, and shrink them in the washing machine.
Back in January I knit this shawl, and man the pattern was fun! All colours are the results of dye experiments from the summer – indigo, willow, black eyed susans, and blackberries. May over-dye it in indigo again once I get tired of the colours. It’s a fun pattern, I highly recommend. Pattern available via Ravelry.
I will be there with information on how to get involved with Vancouver Mini Maker Faire 2012!
