I love to crochet. It is just one of those things that relaxes me and brings me the satisfaction of making something useful with my hands.
This past weekend I decided to crochet some slippers. I hate wearing my shoes around the house and do not like slippers that make my feet hot. So I wanted to find something that I could make that would protect my socks from wearing holes in the bottom and not be too hot.
I found this pattern for crocheted slippers and decided to give it a try. The slippers turned out great and they are so comfortable to wear! My 10 year old son loved them so much he wanted me to make him a pair. He has a favorite pair of Oklahoma Sooners socks and they had worn a hole in the bottom of one of them. So he asked if I could make a pair of red slippers for him that he could wear with his OU socks.
His slippers turned out great too. I adjusted the pattern down to make them a bit smaller for his feet, and he also wanted them to come up the ankle a bit more so I added a couple more rows around the top.
My only blooper in this whole project is that I picked out some yarn that was not sturdy enough. It was nice and soft, but I don’t think it was the right kind of yarn to use. After wearing my slippers around the house for a few days I wore holes in the bottom of them both! Either it was the yarn or the fact that I must walk miles in my home each day!
I was so sad, but learned my lesson. I will be making myself another pair soon with some stronger yarn!
