Crochet? Okay!

Thanks to a month of illness going around the family, our holiday plans ended up a little fast and loose. Finally I have finished my last outgoing holiday gift: crochet slippers for my Mom!

Once upon a time I was an avid knitter. I do still knit, but I find it takes a long time to finish a project. I have been enjoying crochet more, lately, because it is much faster. 

If you like these slippers, the pattern I used was The Knitter's Crocheted Slippers from my favorite yarn site, KnitPicks. I love love LOVE their yarn. It is great quality and very affordable, and they have great affordable patterns, as well. For the flowers, I googled and found this FREE pattern. I really liked the flowers, and will definitely use them again. The yarn I used was Caron Simply Soft.
