A perfect fit

You’d think that these were molded onto my feet, the fit is so perfect.

Oh, wait a minute; they were! Please excuse the wrinkly sock marks on my feet; I was wearing my Shur’tugal socks with clogs, and racing for daylight. I didn’t have time for the sock marks to go away. If I had waited, you’d only get this picture:

I love how these turned out. I forgot to note which was left and which was right, so I just decided. Aren’t these just the cutest things you’ve ever seen?

Mods: I followed katec4b’s no-sew mods (Rav link). If I were to make them again, I’d modify them further to not come up quite so high in front. And I’d knit the strap a little longer, so I wouldn’t have to worry that it felts faster than the slipper itself.

I’m teaching a Pippi Hat class tomorrow (Thursday) at Twisted. There’s still a little room. If you’re looking for a fun project, call the shop, register, and come on down!

It’s a busy knitting week. Our high school fund-raiser knitting party is at Twisted on Saturday. We’ll have a project, yarn, Lantern Moon needles, and dessert. Lots of dessert.

Happy knitting!

  3. Those are really cute! Darling buttons!!!

  4. I love them. I had passed them up, but now I think I’ll have to go put them back into the queue…..those babies could go PUBLIC…..

  5. Very cute! I’ve finished slipper #1 using the no-sew mods – sooooo much better. Can’t wait to felt them & see the final product. Cute buttons!

  6. Adorable. I love your buttons! I wasn’t really into this pattern until I saw your version. 🙂

  7. Those turned out great! Love the buttons.

  8. Halfway Crafter

    They’re cute! I love the colour and the buttons, but I especially love the wrinkly feet!

  9. Every time I see that someone has made these, I come just a little bit closer to making them myself! They are so adorable! I love the buttons 🙂

  10. Oh those are so cute – I think I’m going to have to make a pair for me and my girls! Are you going to put anything on the bottom? When I made my felted clogs I lived in them because they kept my feet so warm. Unfortunately, I wore through the bottom. Also, I have a lot of wood and tile floors – very slippery. So I would probably have to add grippy fabric to the bottom.

  11. Love the way your slippers turned out.

    Sock marks – would that be bragging or complaining? Seems to me it’s a badge of honor for knitters. 🙂

  12. Adorable! LOVE the color, too.

  13. So cute! I love the button detail – what a nice touch.

  14. These turned out wonderfully! Did you felt using the washing machine?

  15. Those turned out super cute! I’ve had that pattern in my queue for awhile, but still haven’t managed to get around to knitting them. I think the idea of doing them in pieces was a bit of a turn-off, but maybe eventually I’ll get to working on them! 🙂

    Thanks for posting the no sew version – I like them but I’m not too fond of seaming…

  27. They look lovely! I’ve got a pair on my needles at the moment, and seeing yours really makes me want to get on and finish them. Love the buttons!

  28. They look so cozy and the the buttons contrast nicely with the red. Cute!
