The right moment presented itself ie. a rainy night in, with the tv on the toh beside me and a toasty warm log fire = the perfect opportunity to start a new crochet project right?
The first one of 2015 actually.
Yarn details and stockist:
I used Rowan Pure wool Dk available from Butterfly Bright, my new favourite ‘go to’ shop for yarn and fabric, they have a delicious choice of colours in store.
Based in the pretty town Sherborne , well worth a visit so do pop in and say hello from me, if you are in the area.
I settled on these three shades:
A grape mauve, a darker purple and a bright mustard yellow.
This yarn is a joy to work with….no splitty bits, soft as silk and works up quickly and easily.
I found the pattern simple to follow but had to concentrate a bit more when working the heel!
The minute I had finished photographing I put them on with my slippers…very glam!
They were soft and cosy and kept me warm all day…..
A confession! I was so eager to wear them I did not weave in the ends, you may be able to spot a few poking through? Oops
I bet you are looking for them now??
I can highly recommend this pattern and this yarn…they go together like tea and cake!
…..anyone else made or planning to make these yet?
