(Not My) Grandmother's Slippers
I'm still knitting! I know that it doesn't seem like it, but I do have some small projects that I'm clicking away on while watching American Ninja Warrior, a guilty indulgence that motivates me to climb harder routes at the gym.
These slippers are for a friend who fondly remembers getting new pair of slippers annually from her grandmother. Although her grandmother is no longer here, my friend did have her grandmother's pattern and the last pair of slippers (preserved in a Ziplock bag) tucked away. With those items in hand, I was able to recreate the slippers - I'm a sucker for a challenge.
I love the way these turned out. They do remind me of something my grandmother or an elderly relative would knit for her beloveds.
These slippers were cool because they are knit flat and then seamed together. My project notes are here.
Does anyone know of a similar pattern? I was trying to find the original source, but no luck.
