One of her 'for sale' items is the package I purchased. A pattern book and DVD for several different sizes of several different styles of machine-knit slippers. Considering myself , despite several years of ownership, a machine-knitting novice still, and trying hard to change that situation, I looked forward to elevating my skill set under Diana's tutelage.
But then came Dad's heart attack, Christmas, Dad, Florida, Dad, fatigue, Dad - you get the picture.
Yesterday, with a winter snow storm forcing me to stay home and indoors, proved to be the perfect time to try the slippers.
I did it!!! I can't believe I did it. I mastered the pattern. Even my non-verbal hubby was impressed and raved about my talents when he saw the slippers. He said "Good for you."
You can see by this picture that the slippers are two different colours.
This is the No Sew, Lined Slipper from Diana's book Footnotes - Goodies For Happy Feet. The lining is knit first and without a break the knitting continues on to the outside of the slipper.
The slippers, being a double layer of wooly, yarny goodnes are super warm. Just what is needed for our minus 14'c day. (About 4'f I think for my non-celcius readers.)
My feet are warm. I've learned a new skill. I am super thrilled. Thanks, Diana.
