Duffer slippers
I have been busy knitting slippers. I have slippers all over the place! The single pair was a gift to my dil for her birthday and the other 4 are slippers I knitted for a group of friends. Fun, quick knit and very easy.

I always love these projects. I think the duffers are cute. I have never attempted to knit them myself though. Great job.

One of the great things is how quick and easy these are to knit and they make such great gifts. The orange pair I finished with big buttons on the toe of each and really turned out cute. I used knitpicks bulky wool of the andes yarns and they make almost three pairs of adult slippers per two skeins, with the solid color being enough for a fourth one. You can't beat that for a hand knit gift that is truly inexpensive.

I made 4 pair of these duffers for the auction at our family reunion! They were a very hot item. All the girls and ladies wanted them. Yours are really cute!

I think they are a great gift item to give to women. They are inexpensive to make, quick to knit up and felt and great looking. I also took fabric paint and dotted and squiggled the bottom and made them slip resistant. One bottle of fabric paint did all 6 pairs I have done so far. I like the two toned slippers best. Thanks for all the nice comments, but a big thanks needs to go out out to the creator, Mindie Tallack on Ravelry.

That's a great idea with the fabric paint. They do tend to be slippery for sure. Have you seen the ones that have a flap across the top of the toes? That's cute too.

They are cute. It is a pattern that is so fun to play with.
