I'm getting back into slipper mode! I am making about 8 pairs of these for some family and friends this year.


*edited*

It's been a while since I picked up a hook. Crocheting hasn't been very easy for me lately due to arthritis in my hands. I can't crochet for long periods of time anymore, so I have to stop and rest my hands during projects. So what use to take me 30 minutes or so, now takes me a lot longer. I still enjoy crocheting, but I just can't do it for very long.

I'll post pictures of my new slippers when I finish them.

Lydia,
I was going to say that even when my arthritis is acting up, I can still manage a slipper.  I am sure that your slippers will turn out great!

it's worse on cold and wet days, but I try to crochet when it is warmer to keep from getting stiff and feeling pain.

I've managed one slipper so far. LOL!

I (quite literally, unfortunately) feel your pain.  I have decided that I am too young for this arthritis garbage, and it has to stop.  The Doc just laughed at me when I told him.

OK...I tried the pattern and once I figured it all out it was pretty quick to do. 
I am not an advanced crocheter and I had a problem with the 4th step in the instructions where you say to hdc in each chain around and continue that to the size you want.  You do not say to continue to join at the end of each round which you have to do or the slipper will be misshapen. Once I figured that out it was pretty easy and the slipper is pretty neat.

Also, it might help if you indicate the number of stitches that there will be at the end of the first three rounds.  6 in the first, 12 in the second and 18 in the third.

Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history.  Our ancestors used to create these crafts out of necessity, and now we do them for fun... to express ourselves.
