Dakota Dreams Stranded Slipover

I just finished this garment this week and thought I'd share it. It is called 'Dakota Dreams' from the book "Fearless Fair Isle Knitting". As you can see from the design, it really isn't a Fair Isle pattern but rather it is a modern design done in stranded knitting. There are two offerings of the garment: this colourway for men and a softer one in blues for women.

help with a pattern

Hey all,
So I am reaching out because I am having a hard time reading this pattern. This is the first time for one of my projects to follow any form of a pattern. I am attempting to make the mens slippers but am getting very confused with the notes at the end of the pattern. I attached a second pattern that had a little more past the adjustments for the men's pattern.

Thanks
Chris

Bowl me over.

Hey, so I'm a potter,(and a knitter, of course) and I thought I'd pick your all's brains. I do lots of yarn bowls, and recently thought of increasing my line. Is there anything you've been looking for, knit accessory wise that I could make, that you've been unable to find?

What I've been up to

It's been a long time away. Currently a potter who knits on the side. Yes, yarn bowls and things to store needles and notions. The things on my needles: Finishing a sweater for my mom. Finishing a Scarf made of tiny crocheted skulls (It just needs to be sewn together), and one of my favorite sweaters that needs retailoring and repair.

ideas for my nephew please

My mom knitted all the time when we kids were young, and one winter we nagged her to teach us. My brothers and I knitted for years, I have done some as an adult but it's been a long time. I have a nephew in his mid-20's who was diagnosed with schizophrenia some years ago. He lives in a small town where there is little for him to do. He's under county guardianship and on meds but occasionally gets into trouble if he has a few beers (starts obsessing, panic attacks, delusions, ends up in hospital).
