For those of us who live in northern climates, there’s nothing quite like the exquisite horror of walking around your house barefoot in the winter months, especially if you have a hardwood or tiled floor. While many knitting patterns  are aimed at keeping friends and family (and knitters, of course) warm during winter, we can forget that the cold is fully capable of invading our houses. Finding a good knit slipper pattern  and creating your own pair of cozy slippers is one of the best ways to bring your knitting into your everyday life.
Pulling on a pair of hand knit slippers  is perhaps the best way to stay warm in the cold months. Socks, especially the flimsy type typically found at most stores, don’t hold a candle to the insulating powers of knit slippers. Now that the holidays are over, you can indulge yourself and knit something just for you. Let’s be real, knit socks are the perfect cure for cold feet. Try out one of these free knitting patterns  and slip into something a little more comfortable.
