The knitting break

July 29, 2008 at 10:35 am 3 comments

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.
