Flying Away on Winter Wings November 26, 2012

Time to follow the Sand Hill Cranes as they head south of the border, warm tropical breezes, cool, cool waters.
I’m laughing in the face of impending Holiday Epic Fail. I’ve thrown caution to the winter winds, putting my Christmas gift projects aside, and starting a project, for ME! I need a pair of slippers to keep my feeties warm in the office. My usual footware of choice, my old favorite hiking boots, are cumbersome at my desk, my tootsies want softness.

I found a couple patterns I really like, and with some ingenuity and craftiness, I plan to merge them into something fun and easy.
For the top half, I want to crochet this:
Crocodile Stitch Boots (Adult Sizes)
Pattern source: Two Boot Patterns for 8 Dollars eBook
Craft: Crochet


For the bottom, I’m using this patten, because I prefer a a knitted foot:
St Louis Boots – Slippers
Pattern: 142-36 St Louis Boots – Slippers in seed st in Eskimo by DROPS design
Craft: Knitting


I’m using Knit Picks Cadena Wool, Tree Frog colorway.

After I’ve conquered my alter-idea and completed my prototype, I’ll make both, exactly as the patterns calls for, at a later time (TBD), for gifts…maybe even a miniature version 😉


Ohey, starting next week, I’ll be helping out at Studio S Fiber Arts on Mondays, 10-5pm! Come see our latest KAL, the Intertwisted Cowl, and buy some fabulous yummy yarns!!!!!

Mine’s the Lavendar one, that was a fun little mess! 😉
