The start of a slipper..... I'm using up all the small balls of yarn, making stripes!
 The slippers on the right are a "desert boot pattern, that takes a button on the ankle cuff.
The orange slippers are from the same pattern that I've started above.  The pattern is from a Patons knitting book of my Mom's from the 1940's.  The book also has a page of "2 needle Mitts" in many sizes....

My latest pair of mitts in the raspberry colour - all the items are knit of hand-spun 70%alpaca 30% merino yarn from our cousins' alpaca herd!

See what others are knitting at Judy's blog, Patchwork Times.


  1. Your slippers and mittens look so warm! They will be appreciated when it gets cold. And nice that you have your own source for alpaca yarn!

  2. I really like the orange slipper, do you think that pattern has been published anywhere recently? I like the idea of flat knitting and then just joining the folded up pieces.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
