I recently completed these beauties… a new take on the Chunky Slipper Socks.
Aren’t they just totally and completely snuggy looking??
If they look just a tad large, that’s because these are a men’s size 10.5 (11″)! I was making these for a cousin of mine and thought that he would enjoy this version of the slippers with a “Romeo” style and suede leather bottoms. 🙂 Pretty nifty upgrades, right?
Just thought I’d share something fun that I have had on my looms over the past few weeks. There have been other items…
Like this one:
This is a pretty scarf that has been made with Lion Brand Charisma yarn in the color Northern Lights. I just LOVE that yarn for the looms! It’s so plushy and sproingy, it’s hard to keep your hands from squishing the project constantly, lol. It’s kind of like Charmin in that way. 😉
My looming partner is Xander. He decided to sit for a while while I worked. Although I do have to tell you that this was the calm after the storm, lol. He had just settled down after trying to attack, snag, bite, and run away with my fun string! Kittens and a house full of fiber can be quite tricksy at times. They make quite the perfect leg warmers, though!
btw: I have some absolutely fantabuloso news to announce on Friday…so staaaay tuned! 😀
Oh, and don’t forget about the Loom Along coming up in October for the Servin’ Up Stripes, Loom Knit Table Runner! More info on that coming up soon too.
Have a terrific rest of the week, All!
Fabulous!!! Looks like you, Isela Phelps and Anne Bipes are sisters in knitting! All of you inspire me and I use your patterns, books and video-tutorials a lot! Those slipper-sox are great looking, and I’ll bet they are going to be his favorite 🙂 Let me now if he likes the leather (or suede) bottoms that you’ve sewn onto them. I’m thinking of making a pair like those but am not sure weather to go with what you’ve done here, or to go with what you’ve done in the past by felting wool and attaching to the bottom of the slipper:) Thanks so much for all of your creative endeavors 🙂
Hi Bethany, what stitch are u using for the scarf? I only have used both sides of a board once and that was a basic stitch.
i love those slippers! I have a pattern some where, and once I get my pea pods off the looms (2 of them to get done QUICK) I just may have to start those!
Josie, the main stitch is the twisted rib stitch for double knitting, also included are bands of 4 repeats of the honeycomb stitch (or interrupted rib stitch). You can find a good article on how to wrap the pegs here: http://www.brighthub.com/hubfolio/heather-schulte/articles/102940.aspx 🙂 I think it’s a really pretty look on double knit projects and is super easy to do!
I’ll have to see about releasing a new pattern which contains the new adjustments I made on these to convert them to a Romeo style soon! 🙂
Jolene, both sole styles are great choices, but I will say that the felted bottoms, while being super soft and cushy, tend to be very slippery on un-carpeted flooring! This is the one thing that the leather bottoms have over the felted version. But you could add that non-slip coating that is sold for rug bottoms onto the felted soles as a precaution. 😉
I love the soled Romeo slippers. I also love your leg warmer. LOL I have a cat also that wants to sit in my lap while I loom.
