Stitchwort Slipper Pattern
There is nothing nicer to have a pair of slippers to pad around the house in. This is my second go at these, and this time a bought some super chunky wool, so I could be absolutely sure what I was working with. I also made them a little bit smaller, but still with enough room to fit a pair of woollie socks on for when it gets colder.
As you can see, we are having a bit of a heat wave here at the moment. I am not very good with the heat, but am trying not to grumble and make the most of the good weather while we have it.
My pattern only comes in one size at the moment (4-5 UK sizes), which is because that is my size. The wool that I used is Wendy Serenity Super Chunky. (Be careful as there is also Wendy Serenity Chunky, which does look quite similar.) I usually tend to knit with quite fine wool, so it was lovely to use super chunky and knit something very quickly.
I have just done a bit of free style embroidery. Why not gave a go at this? It is really very easy, but instantly makes your shoes a bit special. I think making the sprigs of flowers asymmetrical looks nice.
Apart from all the usual places (Etsy, ravelry and Craftsy) I will also put this pattern in my new shop on LoveKnitting. Felt rather enthused when I saw this online London-based shop store, so I have put some of my patterns for sale there just to see how it goes.
