I used a new-to-me pattern for a pair of slippers. I like these slippers because being made from a single strand of worsted weight yarn, they are nicer for warmer weather. I think I could have used a smaller hook except with my big feet they are a bit hard to pull over the heel as it is. I will play around with this pattern and make them again. I'm going to look for a similar pattern with a more defined heel. This pattern is from the book Crochet for Caring and Sharing. The projects in this book revolve around the theme of breast cancer awareness. My slippers were made out of a partial skein of left-over yarn, hence the reason they're not pink. Here's the picture from the book--
Hope y'all are having a nice day. Take care and I'll be seeing you again here in blogland.
I'm still making hats for next Christmas. I feel so motivated. This hat is for a young child. This pattern is very easy. The only variation I did was to make a pompom instead of a crocheted "ball" to put on the peak of the hat. I hope I get to see a picture of youngster wearing this hat next holiday season. Here it is--
I found a new pattern for slipper socks that I want to try. These are a bit more "light-weight." I need to step out of my comfort zone and try something different. I finished a scarf last night except for weaving in the ends. There are a lot of them since there are stripes involved. Hope to have that ready to show you in a day or 2.
The 2 Santa hats I made for last Christmas went over so well that I had requests for more. I was requested to make one in green for one of the elves in California at the North Pole. This is a fun pattern to make--it's easy and for me, it takes a little over an evening watching television to make one start-to-finish. It's great to have such an early head start on projects for next Christmas.
