In a recent review of "The Knitted Slipper Book", I mentioned that the yarn for Christmas slippers for Diane was on order! Well - it has arrived, has been wound into balls, tucked into a "slipper basket", and knitting has begun!

When asked for color suggestions, Diane requested jewel tones in shades that would not show dirt! Given that one can never ever rely on the colors showing on a computer screen for accuracy (thus making it risky selecting two colors that play nicely together), I decided to go with a deep charcoal Lamb's Pride for the outside clog. It will go well with most colors and never show a speck of soil!

Instead of one set of liners, I am knitting Diane two sets of liners - one in deep teal blue (Cascade 220) and one in deep pink. Since the clog liner is completely separate from the outside clog, I thought it would be great for Diane to have two liners - to match her mood or simply to have one always ready to slip into her clog while the other is being washed and dried.

The beautiful rich jewel tones of the liners will be repeated on the outer clog using a bit of needle felting and maybe a little embroidery. Katie shares instructions for embellishing slippers both in the book and here in one of her technique videos.

So as of right now - I am this far along on the first outer clog! (I drew a little line across the image of the completed knitted clog in the upper left to show my progress so far.)

Honestly, I thought after having knitted at least five pair of socks, I would know everything I needed to know to knit the slippers! Well - I found out there are new techniques to be learned! But thanks to Katie's "Special Techniques" section in the book and her technique videos, I am finding my way quite nicely.

And if I do get lost, Katie has a special Ravelry group right here where slipper knitters can go to find help. (And show off their slippers!)

I will continue to keep you posted on my progress! And just so you know - Diane is a huge "Katie fan" and is perfectly happy to forgo her "Christmas surprise" so I can share progress on her slippers.

In the meantime, good luck to all who enter to win a copy of "The Knitted Slipper Book"!
