Toasty Toes

Look!  I finished corcheting my slippers.  It was quite a challenge, especially for a beginner.  At several points, I sat in front of my computer using a google search to find out what the stitch should look like.  I love the colors of these; I used dark brown for the bottom sole, an oatmeal shade for the inner sole and blue for the uppers.  Having two soles makes these super cushy.  The only issue is I didn’t realize how “slipper”-y these would be on our wood floors.  Seeing as the wool socks I have are pretty slick, you would have thought I would make the connection that wool slippers wouldn’t be much different.  But despite that, I’m loving having my feet toasty warm in the slippers I made.

    Search the internet for the type of paints that you put dots on the soles to make the like griper socks for kids. I think it is tulip paints.

    Some of that puff paint that you can get at craft stores should take care of the slippery problem- just squiggle some on the soles, or add random dots of it all over the soles. Or maybe attach those non-slip sticker things for showers on to the bottoms. The old school flower ones would look cute! Just my two cents…

    the slippers are just beautiful, by seeing the kind of work you make i would have never thought it is beginner’s work.
    did you use any specific knitting book?
    great job.!

    Oh, by the way, I wouldn’t advise using “shower stickies” on your slippers ~ they will scratch your wood floors. 🙂

    They look fab! And definitely “toastie”. Well done for finishing them.
