Winter Time Slipper Time
I have been working on this slipper for a while now, it is the old Patons Knick Knacks one which uses 14 ply wool knitted on size 4mm needles. As 14 ply isn't readily available anymore I use 2 strands of 8 ply doubled and also knit the front part in the round to eliminate the bulky seam. They are a fun knit and great for using up those extra couple of balls of yarn that we all seem to have lying around.
