I’ve finally gotten back on schedule with the stash knit down 2009. This marks my ninth FO which is what I needed to finish this week. The Magic Slippers, modeled by Winnie the Pooh, are super easy to make. I made a bootie a night; I probably could have made the whole set in an evening if I wasn’t incapacitated with illness.
The socks are constructed by knitting the sole in garter stitch, picking up the edge around the sole and knitting up the sides in garter as well. Check out the very cool pattern from SockPixie. Here’s a closeup of our model sporting the shoes. These fair wee things will be headed to a newborn.
I just love the bespeckled yarn, which I used for my mom’s Christmas socks.
