Testing out a sizing/FBA issue on some really, really thin and kind of not-pretty jersey I picked up on sale at Hancock Fabrics.

What - Learn how to knit fun slippers! This pattern, originally published in 1950, has been updated by me so that you won't have to decipher outdated knitting terms. This pattern is easy enough for a beginner, but still great for a more experienced knitter to take a trip down memory lane.
You will need a pair of size 9 US (5.5 mm) knitting needles and around 220 yards of worsted-weight yarn.
I'll bring tools to make pompoms to the last class, in case anyone wants to do that!
P.S. - I succumbed to peer pressure and went ahead and wrote the pattern. You can get it here.

It's a little funky, but it's all mine!
The pattern is from this Craftsy class, but I couldn't have done it without also watching Linda Lee's Craftsy class. It's a little big on me, so it might end up just being workout/sleep top, but I'm still pretty excited!
(BTW, every single Craftsy class is on sale for just $19.99 or less, but this is NOT a Bl*ck Fr*day post. That is an affiliate link, though, just so you know.)

Happy Thanksgiving, to all who celebrate it!
I just think this is cute.
"Each season before beginning a "siege of sewing", which most of us indulge in at intervals, study the fashion magazines to note style tendencies. If possible, secure a high class French fashion portfolio, several high class American fashion magazines, and several pattern quarterlies which are available in every local community, noting advertisements in magazines and newspapers as well."
All good advice, I think!
