Slippers ........

Children's slippers.. crocheted in synthetic yarn 12ply 
 There is a lovely pattern for these slippers here.. I have made a couple of pairs adding on  more rows for my long foot :)) Check them out you will be surprised at how lovely this blog is :))

Adult slippers crocheted in wool using 8ply..  
multicolour synthetic yarn (R)8ply 4mm hook..
They are so easy to make and a lot of fun..

Remember this project from a much earlier posting??
Well I have put off crocheting 
the sleeves as they are a pain to crochet, to bulky. I ask myself, why did I choose this pattern??  I liked the look of it and thought it would be a breeze. Its like knitting socks in 4ply a never ending WIP.. you have to make 2 LOL......

I have ripped it out so many times, I am thinking of making a pattern on the sleeves that , to be honest , I can finish this winter ..  maybe a diamond pattern up the centre of the sleeve using the cluster st.. What do you think?? 
Spring is in the air:))

The chef is playing his guitar in the back ground and singing, what a joy :) An old rocker from way back :))

Before I go I want to say "Hello"to my friend Tina from Crochet and Orchids  .. We are thinking of you :))

Happy crafting everyone :))

The slippers are lovely as is the WIP cardi. I am all for vests at the moment, maybe you can convert it :-)
