Hooray! more slippers

Just popping in to share a really lovely slipper pattern from here.


If I had paid attention to which colour run I had a started with on the first slipper I might have had a chance to repeat that swirly diagonal swish which happened on the right slipper...but I didn't so there is a little tip for you if you are using variegated yarn.


The yarn is Sirdar Folksong which was a bargain, it is soft and has a beautiful cotton feel on your feet. They are made on a 5mm hook which makes them a bit big for me (probably a UK size 6)so my next pair, yes there will be another pair, will be on 4.5mm in an attempt to get a size 5.


Thanks for stopping by. Keep those toes cozy. Jo xx
