I noticed that I have a new follower this week, even though I have been away. Thanks to all my wonderful followers. I am so glad that you all are finding something here that you enjoy and that you want to keep coming back for a visit.
I am sitting here at my computer with my feet snuggy warm in my new slippers. I knit them using a pattern found in this ancient pattern book. If you don't have a copy yourself, your mother or grandmother probably has it in her knitting basket.
I made the 'Ladies TV Boots'. They call for 'Beehive Craft Yarn, which I have never seen as I believe they discontinued it even before I bought the pattern. I used one strand of Briggs and Little 'Tuffy' (red) and one strand of Patons Classic Wool (brown) and knit with 9 mm needles.
I looked on the Patons site where there are tons of free patterns, but this one is not available either for purchase or for free.
note:you knit this slipper flat and then seam it together at the bottom of the foot. My sister told me when i was finished that I should have added a third strand of DK weight to get the tension correct. I will try that with my next pair.
I want to try some other slipper patterns this year, so let me know if you have a favourite.
