Ooh you're gonna LOVE working with that Silky Tweed...I have lots of it in a couple different colors. LOVE that stuff!


Yay for great days! That is the very first knitting project I did too! I made slippers for the whole family with that pattern.


I am quite certain I made the same slippers, including the pompoms, in variegated orange (quite advanced for its time!) about 45 years ago. You're taking me on a trip down Memory Lane.


I know what you mean, Becky! I've fallen in love with the stuff. I just had to cast on last night & the fabric is SO soft! I'll have to keep my eye out for a sale on Silky Tweed & stock up.

Bliss & Sharon - It's funny how the majority of knitters make the same thing - back then & now! I enjoyed knitting the slippers & remembering how I struggled to get everything perfect when I was a child.


Just looking at your pictures, the shoulders on Audrey are amazing. A whole tank in that pattern might be pretty. The picture is small, but it looks intricate, and beautiful. Happy knitting!

I lent a hand at the LYS when they got their order from Lavold....Most of the gals weren't all excited about the book, but I really liked it! That tank was like the #1 thing for me too. Likely won't make it tho, but I did love it instantly. A lot of her designs are too...subtle...quiet for me. I want excitement!! I want cables...lots o cables, big honking cables!! Intricate this, difficult that.

Then again, this IS the woman who never finishes anything speaking. blush...


Bron,This is a site with great yarn prices. I'm sending it to you so that you can chaeck out the free slipper patterns..knit and crochet.


Thanks, Stonering. :) It should be fun to knit if I can stand all the "plain stuff" to get to the beautiful lacey shoulders!

Lisa - I know what you mean - I like splash! I like pizzazz! I like big honkin' cables that say "Damn it, I just knit something!" hehehe But sometimes I appreciate understated & Lavold is a master at that.

Thanks, Cyndy! I've bookmarked it & will check out the pattern shortly. :)
