I’ve been meaning for some time to share with you a pattern for Chunky Slipper Socks that I’ve re-vamped from an older version of mine from a few years back.
The new version includes instructions on how to create a beautifully turned heel and toe without those pesky holes to stitch up after the fact.
I orginally created this pattern for teaching to my local loomers, and now would like to offer it to you as a new addition to the Peggin’ Pages for only $2.00! 🙂
My family absolutely loves their slipper socks, and everyone who has knitted them has thoroughly enjoyed the simple and quick process, and usually whipped up more than one pair, as they’re perfect for gifts.
So be sure to pick up your copy today!
ok, you got me…but if i can figure this out, then i can make chunky socks for dh!
Those are freakin’ cozy looking slippers. 😀
I just read through your blog (obviously hadn’t done that in a while) and I read about you quitting Michaels. Must have really been hard for you to leave your last day, huh? I know that my last day at Claire’s, even though I was so depressed and going crazy, I felt like I had to have everything in place for everyone else and a very long list of how things work best for the gal to take my place. I felt like I was abondoning my store and their sales have never been the same, but I don’t think I’ll be going back any time soon…if ever. LOL!
Can you believe this conversation I had with Thade (a 4 year old, might I remind you): Over hearing Thade talking about school…
Me: Thade, would you be terribly upset if I homeschooled you and I was your teacher? (I said this trying to put enthusiasm and excitement into a topic that it hadn’t even occured to me that I should discuss with my own child.)
Thade: I would be mad….at YOU. I don’t want you to be my teacher, I want a different teacher. And I want to make friends when I go to school.
Something tells me that he is quite a brilliant cookie, being as that he figured out that ‘homeschooling’ means not going to public schools and not making friends. *sigh* I guess I’ll have to bite the bullet and at least let him try Kindergarten.
😦 Poor pitiful me!
