Looky, Looky

Look at what came off my knitting machine needles this week.
The cutest little slippers.  Called Summer Moccasins, they are  not the thickest or  warmest slippers I have ever knit, but instead, a good purse slipper or a little something to slip on for a chilly, summer morning.

In the late fall I purchased Diana Sullivan's DVD and How To Book called  
Footnotes - Goodies For Happy Feet.  It contains several patterns, in several sizes, for machine knit slippers/sock. 

Yesterday was the first I have had the time to work on a pair.  Although my goal is to eventually make the lined, no-sew slippers, I found them a bit beyond my machine skills. 

My second attempt was the very easy Summer Moccasin. 

Quick and cute.

 I have a bit of a rolling top at the back of the slipper,  but think I can correct that with a few decreases as the I Cord is applied. 

Yes, that would be attached, machine-knit, I Cord!  Thanks for asking, I did indeed master that.

Thanks, Diana for a great pattern that even a neophyte like me can follow.
