Today I’m giving away a copy of a lovely book that came to me for review recently. It is called The Knitted Slipper Book: Slippers and House Shoes for the Entire Family. This collection of 30 designs contains styles for everyone in the family. In addition to knitting instructions, the book teaches you how to do felting, shaping, sizing, attaching soles, linings, and insoles. Some of my favorite designs include tiny-baby Mary Jane style shoes with soft leather soles, and Indian-style moccasins complete with beading. The author of this book is Katie Startzman and she writes a knitting blog called Duo Fiberworks.
If you would like to win a copy of this book, comment below and tell me about the favorite knitting project you ever did. For me, it would have to be a soft mint-green baby sweater I knitted for my second-youngest daughter when I was waiting for her to come home. She and my youngest both ended up wearing it, first as babies, and then into their preschool years as an elbow-length shrug. I loved it and it held up beautifully.
I’ll choose a book winner next week. And if you’d like just a little peek inside this book, watch this cute little video. If you have little children, they’ll enjoy watching it too.
