Easy slippers
***UPDATED PHOTO ON PAGE 3..

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.. ( 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

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.

What size needle did you use for the adult ones? I bet it says it somewhere, maybe II'm overlooking it. Thanks!!

Spooky.. I think that I used a size 4.5 mm

I'll look on my converter.. to give you USA sizes.. (the needles that I use are MM-- so, I've lost my USA mental conversion of needle sizes)..

OK, 4.5 USA = 7 (a size 8 would be fine too)

I just make them a little thicker (use a little smaller needle than you'd use to make a garment out of the same yarn) than you might knit a garment out of the same yarn.. does that make sense? So, they are strudy, warm, and able to stretch more- if needed.

I'm creating a new slipper design right now- I think they'll look great and are UNLIKE any that I've ever seen anywhere.

I have about 4 inches done on one of them- but, won't have time to knit until this weekend.
