Does anybody have a pattern for knitting slippers? I'd be much obliged to learn about it if you do.
I'm trying to develop slippers that are more grandpa than grandma (no offense -- it's only a gender thing) and that are not just socks without the leg part. So far I've produced some knitted oddities that are worthy of the Hand-Did Hall of inFamy.
I'm knitting them for John, my size 14 spouse. I want to try slapping some kind of tread on the bottoms of the slippers to stabilize big John (it wouldn't be pretty if he slipped.) At the risk of expulsion from this knitting community, I confess I have a how-to page from Ms Stewarts' mag (pre-criminalization) for a simple iron-on-glue/faux suede sole for knitted slippers (leg-free socks, they.) Looks like it might work. Maybe some baseball stitching around the edges would help -- make that Giants baseball stitching.
