My daughter told me she wanted a pair of lavender slippers. A reasonable request, I set out to look for them each time I went shopping. Months have gone by and I still haven’t found her slippers - so I did what any good knitter would do: picked out yarn and a pattern so that I could make them for her.
The Bernat Basic Slippers for the Family pattern in the lavender shade of Bernat Satin seem perfect for this project.
Since these are family slippers and I haven’t owned slippers in years, I decided to make a pair for myself too. I usually don’t like slippers and choose to walk around the house in knitted socks in the winter time – so these slippers seem like the perfect compromise for me. I can’t wait to finish them and try them on.
For my own slippers I choose the Nature’s Way shade of Bernat Softee Chunky yarn.
Here’s the pattern book:
And the yarn (clearly, already loved):
My daughter and I are both excited about this project! I hope knitting 4 of essentially the same thing won’t get too repetitive in the coming weeks.
