This knit up VERY quickly.  I used Paton's Grace yarn, but had to make some adjustments for gauge - I got stitch gauge but not length gauge.  I also found out the importance of dye lot and making sure you have all the yarn you need for a project before starting.  notice how the right foot is darker than the left? 

yep.  friggin' GENIUS here... Roll Eyes

This was my first ever project involving cables, and I can't believe what a chickenpoop I was about doing them!   Grin  So fun!

evilsciencechick I LOVE your tatt!  Your brother did an awesome job and I love that he got his A-T's and C-G's all matched up correctly! Grin

Oh, don't think I'm not a big enough geek not to INSIST that the bases all matched up correctly!  BECAUSE I SO AM!  I told him he could do any order he wanted, just so the colors were pair correctly   Grin

given to me by none other than my very own brother!

Wow, I don't know if I'd trust any of my brothers to give me a tat.

 Cheesy  He owns his own tattoo/piercing shop in Pittsburgh, and he's VERY good.  The whole thing was so professional and very clean and sterile - I thought I was having surgery! 

He was thrilled that his big sister trusted him enough to tattoo her, though.  He knew if he messed it up, though, I'd kick his butt!   Roll Eyes

Thanks everybody!   Grin

I got the pattern here:


it's $5, but I figure for the number of cute gifts I can make with it, it's worth the money.  The pattern is easy-peasy, I say!  A bit of warning, though.  if you decide to use sugar and cream cotton, watch the length if your slippers.  the first finish of the first slipper ended up being HUUUUGELY too long for my big feet, even though I had correct gauge.  So just as if you were making socks for yourself, stop and check the sizing on your feet as you're going.

Made with Sugar and Cream cotton yarn - perfect for summer house-lounging.  What a fun knit!  They knit up FAST.  However, I did learn  that the only thing worse than KNITTING with 100% cotton yarn, is CROCHETING with it!  Holy crap!  The edging and straps took almost as long as knitting the body!  I developed muscles!

They did turn out a little big, even though I adjusted the pattern.  Does anyone know if Sugar and Cream will shrink at all?  I've only ever made washcloths with it before, and I never really noticed if they shrunk.

This isn't online, but Sensational Knitted Socks, which is MY ULTIMATE SOCK BIBLE AND SAVIOR AMEN! has instructions for easy-toe, toe up socks.  you knit a little st st rectangle using a provisional cast on, and then pick up stitches all around and knit increases until you have the right count for the foot.

It's a lot easier than I tried to describe there, I swear, and it's how I do most of my socks  Smiley

Nope - no arm pit knitting.  there are SO MANY VIDEOS out there that demonstrate this.

selfish self-promotion:

my continental video

also, there are plenty of other videos you'll see linked on the left side in that link.

good luck!
