I have done a second version of my slipper socks, that might appeal to boys as well as girls. It is a little bit simpler to knit (as there is no purl), and also very quick to make. I just love the way that with a small amount of shaping the shoe suddenly appears as if by magic.
I have always liked making things, and although I have been knitting a lot recently, I also like sewing and other crafts.
I live on the outskirts of London, and work part-time at a local school, and have partly got back into making things because my children are always doing something creative. At school I love the days when we get really messy.
