I love these. I just knit a big anklet sock and threw it in the washer. Woo hoo. If you need a pattern, try Fireside Footies. I used a short, short-row heel. I may or may not have used my husband's clippers to give these a trim. I'm not talking. He shouldn't be the only one in the house with "new recruit" freshness. Slippers need love, too.
