I’m knitting slippers… or I will be… if I have finally found the directions I remember. I knew I had them somewhere, but I couldn’t think where until I accidentally came across them last week. Much to my surprise, the directions were exactly where they should have been… neatly filed away in a binder with other handwritten directions I have collected over the years. I wonder why that particular binder was the one place I never thought to look!
These slippers are knitted as a straight piece using only garter and ribbing stitches and two strands of worsted weight yarn. I sorted through the yarn I had left from making various afghans and I’ll be using this blue and yellow ombre and bright yellow yarn to make my “test” slipper. I really love this shade of yellow… it’s so bright and cheerful, just working with it makes me feel happy.
I have just started knitting, so I don’t know yet if these are the directions I have been looking for. If they are, I will share the directions and photographs of the finished slippers in another post.
Update: I did knit one slipper, but this is definitely NOT the pattern I remember… so the pattern I’m looking for is still missing in action!
