(Try saying that six times quickly!) Got the yarn (KnitPicks Wool of the Andes) in the mail from April earlier this week, started these last night, finished 'em this afternoon.
These are "Aunt Dana's Russian boots" from the 2007 Knitting Pattern-a-Day calendar. Most of what's in here didn't appeal to me, but these seemed like a cute new knitted slipper pattern.
They were a fun knit. This pair is for charity, but I think I'll knit another pair for myself. I meant to mention this when talking about the berets, but lately I've been using the two-circulars method for hats, and I tried it on the slippers and like it there, too. I have tried it and dislike it for socks — they are so small that they go faster on dpns, for me. But I started these on dpns; quit when I was using six of 'em and still had trouble. Knitting on one 16" circular is not my thing, nor is Magic Loop unless I have to. Since I happen to have 2 pair of Inox US #6/4mm circs, this worked out great.
