Got some more knitting to share with you! I needed a new pair of slippers and I found this free pattern called “Duffers” on Ravelry. I’ve had these skeins of orange and brown Cascade 220 Wool in my stash for a few years, waiting to become slippers. This yarn had been knit into half a slipper several times but I always ended up ripping them out for one reason or another.
Fortunately for my feet, I shall rip no more! They are toasty warm in these babies. This pattern was fast and fun and I love how they turned out. They are knit with a double strand of yarn and there is minimal seaming (just one down the center of the sole!). After knitting, I tossed them into the washer for a hot bath and out they came, felted just perfectly.
I love the 2 color option. I call them my *keen slippers* because the toe looks like Keen shoes to me. I’ve worn them so much (hmm, all day, every day) that my big toe started to wear through the sole of one…oops! No worries, they are easy enough to mend with a little yarn or needle felting.
Ahh, nothing beats toasty warm toes. Hope you are keeping cozy!
