Slippers for Boy

Posted on/at 5:26 PM by The Goddess

My son was complaining recently about the chilly post-winter floors. I suggested I make him a pair of woolen slippers, since I just finished spinning up a batch of Corriedale.

I used the pattern I found at Knitting at Knoon Designs in the youth size. After a couple of afternoons, I ended up with what looked like giant sloth socks.

Two complete trips through the laundry on a warm permapress cycle made them come right 'round, to look more slipper-like, thusly.

DS is delighted with the outcome. They are thick and woolly and keep his feet off the cold floors. I'm thinking maybe I need to whip up a pair for myself.
