Have warm feet this winter, or give the gift of warm feet to others with this attractive book. All the Arne and Carlos books are beautifully illustrated and this one abounds with the usual lush photography showing the slippers and whatever inspired them. This includes pieces about life in the past in Norway, which makes for fascinating reading. There are slippers inspired by native Americans, the Sami, bunny slippers, Christmas ones, florals including Magnus the mouse, and of course, Scandinavian pairs. If you can knit socks you can make slippers, and these are also felted for extra warmth. At the front are detailed instructions showing how to make a basic pair, in written form with some staged photographs. Other patterns feature charts, and some include pompoms, beadwork, crocheted flowers or embroidery. All the projects have quite lengthy instructions, but the reward is impressive. This is a book aimed at the knitter who is confident with these extra skills and likes a fairly involved project. Another beautiful and inspiring book from Arne and Carlos.

If you cannot find a good range of knitting materials locally try for a list of suppliers.
