Lots of Fun New Stuff!

I have been working my tush off these last few weeks to get a few more of my patterns out.  I'm so excited to show you what I've got cooking.

First I completed this easy pattern for kids loafer style booties.  Super simple to whip up.

Kids House Slippers

I love them because they have such a clean fresh look but they are so easy to make and really do stay put!

Next I worked on bigger sizes for men and was so pleased with the reaction from  my testers.  They absolutely loved the pattern saying:  "What an amazing pattern! Loved it -it worked up so quickly and the directions are so clear! I HIGHLY recommend this pattern!"  and "LOVE this Slipper."  I was on cloud nine for like a week after hearing from my testers on this one!

While I was working up these samples for the photographer (whose name is Amanda Tipton and who is absolutely fabulous and who I highly recommend if you ever find yourself in need of a product photographer - you can find her here), I tried them on and said to myself WOWIE ZOWIE these are comfy!  They feel like a cloud is hugging your feet. 

Although I thought of this design almost a year ago, it took me this long to perfect the pattern.  I finally got it exactly right!  Tons of trial and error and testing and sampling and trial and error . . . but in the end so dang worth it.

And finally I whipped up this really very easy felted kids slipper pattern, and got it tested too.  So easy peasy to do!  Just a few short rounds and a couple of washes and you're done!

Phew!!  The funny thing is I honestly feel like I've only scratched the surface.  I have way too many ideas and so little time to get them all done. . . . I will have another free pattern available very soon - I've been working on a knee high boot sock that I think everyone will like and will be super easy to make. 

Let me know what you think!
