Adventures in creating new patterns (jan 18)

Ha! Today as I was thinking about items I could make for the Midwest Women's Herbal conference, I rummaged through my yarn stash and found more of the raspberry merino wool. Not quite enough to make a hat, not enough to make even a baby hat, so I though, hey! baby booties.  I attempted to create a new knitting pattern for baby booties, and ended up with slippers that fit me! They were far too large for any baby that I know.  whoops!

but hey, now I have merino wool pink house shoes. 

You too can have some of these accidental slippers, already knit up. (available in shop soon)

or make your own with the pattern, available on the website soon.
