Looming this week
Both pairs of slippers were done using a modified version of Meilynne's pattern. I like a little taller slipper so I usually increase the ankle rows. The blue/gold slipper has one strand worsted weight and is 20 rows flat knit for the cuff and one strand worsted weight and one strand homespun for the rest. The blue/white is wool-ease thick and quick for the 10 row k1, p1, cuff and the rest is 2 strands worsted weight. The socks were done on Cindy Albert's adult sock loom from the Knitting Loom Company. Now this pattern is quite modified! I've basically used three different patterns, a whole lot of searching and a ton of trial and error along with my own information to create my socks.
