Now that summer is over, my feet are getting cold and I need slippers.
This project is leftover from February. The yarn was a gift from Matt for Valentine's day. (I made him a pair of these slippers awhile ago that he absolutely loves, yet I wore all the time even though they were too big and I would trip up and down the stairs, etc...) The pattern is from Fiber Trends and knits up relatively quickly. The only challenge is not losing your spot because of all the short row shaping. Actually, it's an excellent pattern to learn about short row shaping.
My cold feet are only part of the inspiration for restarting this project. For my birthday, I received this really neat knit-nerd cool interchangeable circular needle set.
