Some people reserve Wednesdays for WIPs (work-in-progress projects) and Fridays for FOs (finished objects). With me you get a WIP or an FO when I remember to post one or the other or, in this case, both.
I’m not quite finished with the orange seamless slippers I knit but decided to take a picture of them anyway. I just need to sew on the soles (black oval shapes) and make pom poms.
These were originally for me so I decided to cast on another pair using free green yarn and the variegated color to put away for later use or gifting.
The green is much brighter than this picture shows but since I’m a green person, I love the color. Mr. Aitch is a blue person. Anyway, I have two mistakes in these slippers. The first mistake I discovered is the unslipped stitch on the back faux seam. It’s hard to see in the photo but it’s very obvious in person. A rib of stockinette stitches run up the triangle faux seam. There’s a big bump there. The second mistake is that I increased a stitch on the sole. Not that big of a deal but I know it’s there. So I decided to put away the orange ones and keep the green ones for me.
Ms Ida mittens are slowly coming along. The slippers are semi mindless knitting and I needed something like that this weekend while I was trying to declutter and clean my house for a party we’re having this weekend.
