The Search for the Perfect Slipper

The summer came just as fast as it went and the last little while I've been feeling that urge to pull out the needles once again. The search has been on for the perfect quick and easy slipper. I wanted something relativity simple (instant gratification this project is key), but not too plain and Grandma like. After searching high and low on Ravelry and just googling slipper patterns I finally found what I was looking for. Which is good because I was beginning to think that maybe I was just being too damn picky and was wasting more time on the internet then knitting(since knitting time can be scarce to non exsitant as is). I was about to give up until this little number came along. Summer Cable Slippers by KLC Creations . This seems exactally what I was looking for in a slipper pattern and it is going along swimmingly! I realize that the pattern is called "Summer" Cable Slippers because they are not an overly thick slipper but they are perfect and perhaps will just be memories of summer slippers as the days are getting chillier. The pattern is written for ladies sizes but I am hoping after the first pair that I make that I might be able to modify it for child sizes. I'm on a mission this fall, all the girls are getting slippers.
Stay tuned for updates!
