Slippers for Mercy
I knitted socks for my daughter Peace recently, and promised socks to the other girls as well. Mercy picked out some yarn that wasn't especially sock-friendly, so I made slippers instead. Mercy says they are soft, and she is a stickler for comfort! She wants to wear them to church, but I don't think so...... These turned out so cute, Verity wants some as well!
I used the Pocketbook Slipper pattern, modified for a smaller foot and sport-weight yarn.
Yarn is KnitPicks Shine Sport in Crocus, consumed less than one ball. I used size 2 circs, made them 2 at a time. A quick knit and an easy pattern.
We planted the marigolds yesterday. I am hoping to collect enough to use for dye. Marigolds are supposed to produce quite a nice yellow dye.
