For all your Commercial Drive-wear needs. Good fits, but sometimes the designs, and often the yarns are blah. An experienced crafter could add some zoosh, for example, to the basic slipper pattern.

I've knitted some great pairs of slippers from this book. Looking to knit from some other patterns too. Easy knits and simple to follow patterns.
