The knitting break

K.’s little cardigan project is coming along very nicely.  But it is still just that straight knitting that is driving me bonkers.  So I’ve set it aside for just a bit (as I did with L.’s pullover) and found a quick, simple, instant gratification project.

L. is really starting to outgrow her other slippers that she has and being a crafty mom, there is no excuse as to why my child shouldn’t have some handmade slippers.  Of course L. is happy with them because they are purple.  And FYI, I should’ve washed them first then gave them to her because when she took them off, her little feet had lovely purple fuzz all over them.



The pattern I used came from My Longest Years blog called the “in a jiffy slippers” and they definetly were done in a jiffy.  YAY!  Yarn is Lily Sugar ‘n Cream that I got from Pat Catan’s whose knows when and used size G crochet hook.  Mods, added one more increase row and then just kept crocheting until the piece was the length of L.’s foot.  Also, added a little strap and button because they kept slipping off her feet when I was trying to find contrasting scrap yarn.  Overall, I’m very happy I got my “instant gratification” project and L.’s happy because now she has some “perfectly purple” slippers to run this house with.
