I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Slippers or Moccasins on the Go

So I will have you know that I am making a pair of slippers for my NightShirt. I decided in three colors and two textures. The sole of the slippers is black as you can see. I went with the bigger model as I thoughht this will be good for me. I also went with double strands of yarns instead of single strand. I want my slippers to last me for some time. I also went with a combination of colors and textures different than what the pattern called for. This I believe will look more like a moccasin than a slipper

The actual pattern is called Ribbed Cuff Comfies by Ruth Sheperd , The pattern is easy, but there comes a point were I got ver confused and started to finish the slipper in my own way.

This is another view of the top of the slipper, I Am making the second slipper at the same time. Sometimes patterns are made for the designer. I did not think the instructions for the top were very clear. The rest of the pattern seems to be better. The other material will be for the ribbed cuff and I have a feeling it will look and feel great.

Well thanks for stopping by and come back later, I will have at least one of them done, then I will have to decide how to embelish the top.

The colors are a great match for the night shirt. Unfortunately, lots of patterns seem to be written for the designer for the sake of publication and I can't understand a lot of them.

Good luck with them and I cannot wait to see them completed and on-with the nightshirt and nightcap (hint-hint)
