Saturday saw another attempt. And another and another and a few more. Finally, I was achieving a modicum of success. Then I turned the page. Yet another entire page of instructions. Most of them short rows - the source of the frustration for my first 8 or 10 attempts. So I asked myself.
"Brenda, do you really need this amount of Friday stress?"
Good question. Obviously the Friday Slippers, for me, were going to be 'A Week From Friday Slippers' or more likely, 'The Last Friday Of Next Month Slippers'.
By the time I got comfortable with the pattern I could knit multiples of my slipper favourites - Duffers.
And that is just what I did . No Friday Slippers for me. Instead I shopped the stash
My complete stash of 4 balls, along with a bit of contrast yarn, knit 2 pair of Duffers.
