Today the latest issue of Knit Now arrived at the newsstands and I'm thrilled that one of my patterns is in it: my "Heart Slippers" The magazine features a 'Designer's challenge', in which three designers are asked to design something with one ball of yarn. In the current issue the yarn is West Yorkshire Spinners Aire Valley DK, a durable and machine washable wool and nylon blend available in more than 20 colourway. Well, when I saw it I knew that the perfect project for it is... slippers.
Knit cuff down, partly in rounds and partly in rows, the slippers feature a cute heart motif on the instep and are knit in only a couple of hours. What a perfect treat to keep your feet warm - for yourself or your loved ones on Valentine's Day.
