Hi all I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend. Mine has been pretty good, I got a bit done around the house and have spent some time with hook and yarn and I’m pleased to say I have a completed project! Earlier in the week Elena from Beatriceryandesigns
posted about these cute Mary Jane SkimmersI went and checked them out and of course bought the pattern. I completed a pair this weekend for myself, I wear slippers at work (no shoes allowed in my room, crawling babies) only they look like real shoes. Since I am on carpet all day I chose not to make them non-skid or outdoor useable, but the pattern author has a nice article about this on her blog: http://hookcandy.blogspot.com/2011/10/making-crocheted-slippers-non-slip.html

Aren’t they cute! the pattern can be found here on Ravelry
I found the pattern to be easy to follow and well written. It cost a bit more than I usually will pay for a single item pattern, but I am glad I splurged.
I made the XS size with an I hook with Red Heart Love yarn in the color lettuce and Caron One Pound in the color espresso. I really enjoyed working with the Love yarn, even with 2 strands it was nice, the Caron on the other hand was difficult a bit too stiff and hard to work with 2 strands. They fit perfectly, I wear size 6 shoes. I already have plans for another pair, just need to decide on the yarn.
I will purchase from HookCandy again, I saw a couple of other patterns I thought I might like. Time to cook supper I am making Ham and Asparagus Fried Rice from this recipe

Ya’ll have a great week! Angel
