Can someone help me with a pattern?

It's been a good few years since I last posted here! Since then much
has happened, including a new nephew.
I've spent the entire day today searching for an interesting pattern for
a 2-year old boy, and haven't found anything that "speaks to me". Does
anyone have a pattern for me - preferably something with a cable - aran
- or at least something just plain interesting. I'm an advanced
knitter, btw. And I have two weeks to do something for Christmas.

You might get a wider variety of replies if you post your question on rec.crafts.textiles.yarn. The folk over there have an astonishingly broad range.

Thanks. I searched newsgroups for knitting, didn't find anything, and decided to revert to this one.

I recognized a couple of the patterns in the knittingpatterncentral site from a book I had. I just gave it away last year when I got rid of a ton of old knitting books.

Thanks again. I like the slippers - I had always felt knitted ones were too risky on hardwood but the owner of a local yarn shop told me to use Shoe Goo on the base. When it dries it is like the rubber patterns on the bottoms of some commercial socks. I have some of the Shoe Goo (readily available in hardware stores) but haven't yet tried it. Might take a shot at some of the slippers and try it out.
Certainly lots to look at with both sites !

I have moved so many times in the last few years. When I decided to make this jersey I went confidently to my bookcase to pull out my most trusty book, and it wasn't there.
So frustrating. And in the spirit of decluttering I think I managed to throw out the pile of patterns I've been hoarding and collecting for 30-odd years. Oh well, at least I could find the needles, and SOME suitable wool.

Never heard of that before, but it's a good idea. Wonder if we can get it in Africa. I've been wanting to make myself some socks - could make slipper-socks!

Some people also use the dimensional fabric paint that comes in squeeze bottles. You can make patterns or dots or whatever, again like the bottoms of the slippersocks in the stores.

Have you done it Dawne ? I figure since she owns the shop she wouldn't mislead me, but OTOH she is selling yarn lolol
