I've been told perfection is boring. Well, I'm certainly not boring (just ask my friends) and I'm definitely not perfect (just ask my kids)! Because of this I have a standing policy of rewarding people who nicely bring an error to my attention with a free single pattern download from my Ravelry pattern store.

Five years ago at a knitting retreat, my friends and I decided it would be a good idea to cross a wash cloth with a slipper to make a quick and fun way to clean the floors.  I had fond memories of dancing my floor clean with my children when they were little so I was totally game.  I wrote, they test-knitted and gave feedback…and Spot Shots were born.  

When I reviewed the pattern for The Queen’s Garters I was amazed at how much my style as a designer had changed.  Needless to say, the pattern has been updated significantly from the original for this collection.  It’s now written in rounds and is more streamlined.   This version includes the plain slippers and a “dusty sole” variation. It still comes in 6 sizes, so the entire family can dance the floor clean!
