Right now I am busy working away on some Fleece Artist Vamps! We just got these kits in and brought them to the Manitoba Fibre Festival over the weekend. What are vamps? They are super warm, slippers or boot socks. Traditionally knit in Newfoundland, they are great for keeping your feet cozy! Over the weekend a woman mentioned to me that her daughter loves them to wear in her Toms to wear them a bit longer into the fall and I was all about that! The kits come with a merino yarn and a fuzzy mohair blend from Fleece Artist which you hold along with the merino for extra warmth and coziness! The kit comes with all the yarn and the pattern for the Vamps – all you need is a set of US 6/4mm needles.
