Easy slippers

I only needed to finish about 2 inches on one of the slippers- when my tendon was injured in my hand- so, I couldn't knit for several weeks. *Thanks for all the entertaining posts here at KH while I was 'unable to knit.' :D

Anyway, I was
able to finish up my slippers that will be gifted soon. For more details and the pattern for the slippers- check out my blog.. (:aww: I've always wanted to be able to say that!)

I went and got the pattern. Thanks. This would be a good quick stocking stuffer. Hmmm... and I thought I was finished with that stuff!

These knit up fast!! I've made several pairs and everyone has always loved them. I haven't tried to make a pair for men yet-- but, I don't think it would be hard to make adjustments. :D

They look great! I might give them a go . Thanks for the pattern :)

Oh do.. they are just a rectangle w/ some decreases at the end- and if you don't know how to do that-- you wouldn't even have to.. it's just WAY EASIER to draw the stitches close together if you do 'decrease' on the last row.

Ok, for her.. you'll have to cast on less stitches.. So, measure her foot (arch area) from the side of the foot to the other side (how high you want the shoes to rest on her foot when wearing them- below ankle) and then.. just measure her foot and make them about an inch shorter than her foot is.. and they'll stretch up to 2" shorter than the foot- so, she'll be able to wear them for awhile. :D

EASY PEASY to make them.. I promise!
