Crochet slippers

Saturday, 4 August 2012

It has been very busy around here this week, with Education Week taking up much of our time, so I haven't posted in a little while. Awards night (where Miss 13 won an award for Academic Excellence, soo excited), athletics carnival, school open day, parent teacher interviews, the list goes on.

I start to get a little bit excited around this time of the year because with netball and football seasons nearing an end I know the warm weather won't be far behind. I am getting started with the spring vegetable seedlings in a new little greenhouse Mr Homespun bought for me a couple of weeks ago (I'll post more on that another day).

The cold weather (and my stinky slippers) have got me thinking about my Grandma. No, she didn't have stinky slippers, but she used to knit crochet slippers and whenever we would visit her she would give us a few pairs each to wear around the house.

I loved those slippers. And none of us have the pattern for them. Bummer.

But since I am a much faster at crochet that I am at knitting I have been on the lookout for crochet slippers patterns. I haven't decided which one I want to make, but here are some that are inspiring me.

There are so many lovely patterns on Etsy and on Ravelry. I will get around to picking my favourite and then I shall work on getting rid of that nasty acrylic yarn I have in my stash!

What have you been up to?
