Hi, my name is Gina and I am a long-time lurker, first time poster. If I made any mistakes in my first post, please tell me so I can fix it straight away! I have been knitting since 2003 and just recently took up crochet this May after seeing all of the funky patterns in the Happy Hooker. This bunny slipper pattern was just too cute to pass up, so I decided to try my hand at some tan-colored bunnies. I double stranded Cascade 220 (the color was Sunflower) with Rowan Kidsilk Haze. I don't remember that yarn's color, but it was almost an exact match! Here are my results!http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/69971bunny_slippers.jpg
And to get the full effect, here is me in the morning with them on! (My mom made the pom-poms for the bunny tails!) I added more to the heel of the slipper because I didn't like how they were flopping off of my feet all the time. Other than that, I'm very happy with them. I also painted carrots on the soles of my slippers with fabric paint to prevent me from slipping and breaking my neck!http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/69971Me_with_slippers.jpg
And now for the variation! My little sister just turned 17 and wanted me to make her some slippers. We found this ridiculously yellow mohair at my local yarn shop and had the sudden inspiration to make Pikachu slippers. I used Cascade 220 (the color was Goldenrod) and Katia Ingenua mohair this time, and got bulkier slippers. I'm very pleased with the results! (My sister is too, she calls them her Pikashoes.)
That's all for me! I love this website and enjoy seeing everyone's creative projects! Questions/comments/feedback wiil definitely be appreciated!
