Ribby Slipper Socks, Completed! :-)

easy knit booties 1

easy knit booties 3

I shared the FREE Interweave ebook that included these easy to make slipper-socks/booties, a while back.

Since then, I’ve made two pairs, these blue ones for me and an orange and brown pair for Joe.

What a fun pattern and definitely easy enough for a beginner to follow. And of- so- toasty warm too. 😉

I like the design of these, with the sock-style cuff. They stay up a lot better than some other booties I’ve made in the past.

If you’ve got cold tootsies  and   booties like I do, or are looking for a pattern for someone who does, check this one out.

Children to men’s sizes in this pattern and some other very nice accessories included in this ebook too.

I made mine in Lion Brand Da Vinci yarn (foot) and some “stash” worsted weight yarn( for the cuffs). I only needed one skein of the Da Vinci yarn and I wear size 8 1/2-9 shoes.

As knit booties/slippers have a tendency to stretch, better a bit snug fit to begin with than too loose. 

Let me know if you give them a try! 

Happy Knitting. 🙂

Knitted Cable Footies

My knitting “stormcontinues. 😉

I just finished a couple more pairs of socks. Also, a large, easy knit throw I’ve been working on for a long time (it’s shown in the background here).

Now I have a shawl to complete next, for a gift; if I ever can find the right beads to finish the edge!!! So many choices but too many with holes too small to accommodate the sport yarn this shawl is crochet in.

Oh well, will have to keep looking. Ideally, I’m hoping to find a necklace I can re-purpose for this project in black glass beads as I need about a 100 beads for the scalloped crochet edge. A shawl pattern I designed myself! 🙂

Back to this project:

These Cable Footies are featured in the book: One Skein by Leigh Radford.

 Click here to read my review of this excellent knitting book.

And what a great book it is! Unlike a lot of the smaller-type (rather boring!!!) project books, using small amounts/one skeins of yarn, this book is filled with a variety of lovely and diverse projects, including these easy to make knit “footies”. I really enjoyed making these and plan to make a couple more pairs.

If you are looking for a great knit book for small projects (and a great way to use up stash yarns!) this one is definitely worth a look. 🙂

I made these in Lion Brand Wool Ease Worsted Weight in Gold and for the small size I used about 180 yds. of this yarn. I wear Size 8.5-9 shoes but I don’t like baggy socks or knit slippers so I tried the smallest size and it fits perfectly.

Happy Knitting! 🙂
