A few weeks back my friend BananaStamper, who lives just a few houses down from me, inquired about my slipper making skills...and hinted that she would love a pair for her birthday...IN NOVEMBER! LOL! Of course, I have a big pile of yarn hanging around from various projects and so what better thing to do while watching Greys Anatomy than to whip up a pair of slippers? What was I thinking?
You see, when I set out to make a card, I generally end up with 2 or 3. I get started on something and then find something else I love but it won't fit with the first card, so I finish up the first and make a second and then it isn't just right for the challenge so generally it takes a while before I make a card I love. I'd like to say that the same goes for knitting (okay, it does a little bit) but the problem is really that I am out of practice. So, I searched "slipper pattern" on the Internet and was met with so many, I had a hard time choosing. And, I only knit, not crochet so that narrowed the field down a little. After 3 weeks, here is what I had to show...
3 single slippers!
Let me take moment to explain. You can see that the pink slipper is nice. However, it fit really tight...like leotards tight..and it wasn't super comfy. Even though the yarn I used was meant for a sweater, it felt kind of rough on the foot, so I only made one slipper.BananaStamper wasn't meant to get slippers for her birthday...or ever!
