|Left versus right: who wins?|
Seriously, which toes do you prefer? The left (not modified much) or the right (highly modified)? Both have their merits. I suppose with wear and time, I will find one more comfy than the other.
|Finished "lady" slippers|
Meanwhile I started these "man slippers" that turned out to be just the right "lady slippers". Hee hee! I've made these slippers before for my husband--just less than a year ago in fact (wrote about it here in this post and here ). Just as before I combined three yarns: Phentex Slipper & Craft yarn (for strength), Bernat Roving (for softness) and Briggs & Little Heritage (for durability).
|Sloppy assembly but very squishy|
Admittedly my seaming and overall assembly is a little sloppy, but these slippers are the most comfortable. Ever! I swear! They feel so awesome 'cuz they're so squishy. Love 'em!
Modifications: Using 9 mm straights, I cast on 20 stitches as written; however, I changed the pattern.
Row 1: Knit all stitches
Row 2: Purl 5, Knit 10, Purl 5
This change creates a garter stitch sole which creates the "squish factor".
What's on your needles?
