On The Needles Friday - House slippers

I can't believe another week has slipped by.  I have been right out straight, busy!  
On the needles - well, not this!  I made this pair of house slippers for a great niece for Christmas and this is the photo before I added the crochet trim around the top (or finished that 2nd slipper).  Then I made pair in red/blue for her brother.  I also made a pair for my son (blue/gray) - I finished knitting them about a month ago and just added the crochet trim today, got them wrapped up, put under the tree - and then remembered that maybe I should have taken a photo for my blog!  
I didn't really craft as many gifts this year as I would have liked to.  I made some jelly and apple butter, knit a pair of socks and 3 pairs of house slippers.  Still, I think that all is pretty good when you consider my schedule!  I hope all the kids slippers fit and they like them!  They feel nice and cushy since they are double knit.  I used Wool Ease for the boys and my sister gave me some mystery yarn for the pink pair!

I really like the slipper. It looks as if it would be quick and easy to knit. Do you remember where you got the pattern?

I didn't make many crafty gifts this year either. Those slippers sound warm and cozy. I'm sure they will be loved.
