Summer School, Slippers, Abeyance

On Monday we talked a bit about slippers, and for the rest of the week I’ll be showing off some of my personal favorites.

These are Abeyance, they are proof that I can be amused by the smallest of things, and they’re 25% off on ravelry with the code SUMMER SCHOOL through the end of the day, eastern time, Friday July 24.

It’s all about the loop.  No really, these exist entirely because, as I was tugging on my boots, I decided the loop on the back of them was great and I wanted to do a knit version of it.  And it was every bit as satisfying as I had hoped (though a tiny part of me whispers that I should have done the strip at the back in a different color, and there is a non-zero chance I will do that again at some point in the future).

Seriously though, I have it on good authority that they’re more fun than we should admit in public.  I am not responsible for the repercussions if your friends and family get tired of you going ‘look, there’s a loop on the back!’ every time you wear them.

That’s it for slippers, next week we’ll talk about socks with weird party tricks to finish out the month!
