Sweet Little Slippers
Most of her slippers have a double sole, which you can do in the same yarn, but I used hemp for the outer soles to make them a little more durable, almost like shoes.
This time last year, I was madly crocheting away, making hemp soles for 10+ pairs of slippers, in a variety of sizes. One of these days, I may even make some for myself.
(I got my hemp yarn from LanaKnits)
Year of Ami challenge over at House Full of Monkeys. Every week, I choose one crochet and one knit pattern, found free online. Then I make one of each, and post about pattern issues (if any) as I go. It's been a fun challenge for me, and I've learned a lot about how to shape things in both knit and crochet, to the point that I'm starting to design toys and write up patterns.
