South Marysburgh Knit Slippers

Skein N⁰. 12 & Skein N⁰. 13 – Tired Feet

Winding Churro Yarn on Truck Steering WheelI skipped blogging last week, due to Jason running Le Griz which is a 50+ mile race up in Glacier National Park.  It turns out that it is faster to run 50 miles than to knit a pair of slippers. Although, I was not nearly as focused on knitting as he was on running…

I am starting to think that mud is just a part of ultra running, so I need to remember that when I plan knitting projects.  I used the same tough Churro wool that I used for my slippers so I wasn’t worried about the yarn getting dirty. I stuck with the South Marysburgh free slipper pattern by Sam Lamb. I had no internet and pretty much just made them from memory, which is an indication of how easy they are to make. I did make some color changes because I knew that I wouldn’t have enough of the golden yarn (Skein No. 13) to make both slipper bodies since Jason’s feet are larger, so I decided to do the heel, toe and opening with navy yarn (Skein No. 12) and it worked out perfectly with minimal leftover yarn.
