Hello Everyone,

I just completed a pair of the Knitted Slip Stitch Slippers
for my husband. He tends to wear out the bottoms of
slippers quickly if they are done in one strand, so I made
these slippers with two strands of yarn held together.

I kept notes and wrote up a pattern.
Men's Slip Stitch Knitted Slippers

Of course they could be for women too, if you would like
a thicker slipper. They should be easy to adjust.

If you haven't been to the new forum yet, Craft Discussions
and Pattern Search Forum, drop on over and check it out

Rhonda (CoxMartinez) is looking for anyone who would
like to knit for charity. It is for the Arkansas Children's
Hospital. They need 30,000 caps/hats for children, babies,
teenagers and even some adults.

Mary (mmcelroy) was wondering if there was a knitted
suspenders pattern for men. I searched everywhere and
couldn't find such a thing, neither free nor for sale. So if
anyone else knows of one, it would be greatly appreciated
if you would let Mary know on the forum.

Janet (janet119) was looking for a crochet fly bonnet
pattern for horses. Janet said, "It covers their ears and hangs
down between their eyes. Usually has shiney stuff or beads
crocheted into them along the edge. They usually wear
them during a show or competition."

I couldn't find any such thing, but Char55 came to rescue
with a website link with many beautiful patterns for horses.

Maddison was stuck on a knit sweater pattern for her
husband. She gave a link to the pattern with a picture.
It is absolutely beautiful. mirl56 is helping her with the
problems she is having.

That is just a few of the interesting topics going on over
there. Hope to see you there!

That is all for today.
