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!
