Xanax and Short Rows Update

Ohh yes the Brother KX 350 is what I needed. I was able to complete a whole slipper in about 20 minutes.

In looking at the slipper I think there is to much fabric on the top of the slipper and can not adjust it to look right. I have tried a lot of things. I even reknitted the slipper decreasing a few stitiches.

I folded a crease on each side but it is such a deep crease it just does not look good.

I will have to ask someone if I did this slipper wrong or a way to fix it.

A lot of '7 min. slipper' patterns use this method to bind off: with the latch tool. gather 5 or 6 or 7 loops of the last row, and pull one loop (the next loop) through them- repeat across. This gathers the front of the slipper.
Glad you did not need the xanax after all. Your slipper looks good- keep up the good work!

The gather in the front looks rather strange because there is so much knitted fabric there. I was trying to think of a way to reduce the amount of stitches in the front. As for the Xanax there is still time in the Christmas season. lol
