|The quality of that seaming is why I am so fond of the top-down raglan|
|The high heel he used to be has been ground down/ And he listens for the footsteps that would follow him around|
If you want to make a pair of similar slippers – although I think you’ll agree that they can’t ever be quite like mine – the pattern is here. They’re terribly warm and comfortable, and to be fair there are some quite attractive versions on Ravelry. There’s something they’ve forgotten to add to the pattern, though. They need to just add a line at the beginning that says ‘Only make these slippers if you’re either happily single FOREVER or in a relationship of more than 10 years’ standing where you are mutually trapped by living in an area so expensive neither of you could ever get a mortgage on your own. Because no-one who has ever seen you in these slippers could ever imagine you in an erotic context again’.
