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.
Below, freshly felted.
good to know. I f I want slippers, I will knit duffers, not the Friday ones...
And how fabulous does it feel to use that long ago acquired yarn too?
I made several pairs of the 19 row slippers but have given it up. I only have a front load washer and quilting is just not right in there. I tried using the dryer as well but the slippers never come out as nice. I never liked this washer :-(
PS. Sorry this is my last comment as long as the word verification is active. Too hard to do :-()
Duffers for me, too!
They're really cute slippers.
Good decision to leave that Friday pattern alone! You sure had a lot more patience with it than i would have. Amazing transition from raw to felted Duffer slippers - they look really cosy!
p.s. Vera is right, that is one p.i.a. verification check!
