Working out a pattern

I saw these Mary Jane style knitted slippers on the Victoria’s Secret website. They wouldn’t be that hard to knit would they? To me it looks like, and remember I knit toe-up socks, knit to heel and then cast off. Pick up stitches for the strap and knit until it’s long enough to fasten comfortably and make a simple button hole.

Hmmm I really fancy making some of those right now but I have to brave the city centre for Xmas shopping. 🙁

But when I do get a chance to knit them, and I’m thinking possibly worsted weight yarn or a little heavier I will post the pattern. They’ll be for tiny feet though, I’m a UK size 4 which is a US 6.5 and European 37. But I think you could adapt any sock pattern for them.

How to Knit a Poem

Well I’m still busy with unpacking and yet still have more to pack at my old house. In fact I’ve been so busy that I actually forgot that there was a four part series called "How to Knit a Poem" presented by the National Poet of Wales Gwyneth Lewis starting today. (Big Thanks to Heather for reminding me!) In fact it’s starting in less than an hours time on BBC Radio 4. Oh and I’m interviewed in the first one I think….:)

You should be able to listen online here

In the meantime thanks to everyone who’s left a comment here. I really appreciate it and will try and write back when I can.

So I have today and tomorrow off but have I any time to just doss around and do nothing? Of course not! Back to the grindstone…

Oh and new rented house is smaller but I have a huge room for all my yarn!
