1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Follow the yellow brick road... on: October 11, 2007 01:35:20 PM
how adorable! now, just tap your heals together three times...

Reminds of the moment I just had with my boy.

Me: *taps heels concentrating hard*
Him: What are you doing?
Me: Maybe if I keep doing this and wishing as hard as I can you'll do the dishes.
Him: Alright, fine. I'll do the dishes.
Me: Yay!

If anyone's ever interested, it's a good time killer pattern taking me only 2 hours as a non-crocheter. Chain 2, sc in first ch some even number. This number depends on what size hook youve got and what sort of yarn youre using. Mine was sort of bulky, so I did 4 sc. You then go around, making 2 sc in each one. Then go around again 1 sc and then 2 sc in each one around. Keep doing this until it's able to fit over your the tips of you toes without too much tightness. You then sc in each one around until it covers around mid-foot level. Once it can cover as much of your foot as you like, and you've reached the end of the round chain one and turn. You are now working it flat. Work sc leaving some stitches unworked since youre making the sole and sides of the slipper. Make the sides as high as you like and such. Sc it until it's long enough to reach the back of your foot but stay snugly on. Seam up the back and find how you wanna keep them on your feet. I chose to tie it, sometimes I do maryjane straps, sometimes nothing at all for a more 'manly' slipper.

Fantastic!  I'm wondering, though - are they itchy?  Sometimes those pretty novelty yarns can be less than friendly to bare skin...

 Ive been wearing them since I made them and so far no itchiness. I normally hate novelty yarns but this shit rocks.

I was watching The Wizard of Oz and I needed something to keep busy. I decided to crochet some slippers and as if by the will of the Gods, I had sparkly red yarn. It was destiny. 2 hours later, I had slippers that rock.

Yarn used was Bernat's Ping Pong.

 I added the purple just to keep things interesting... that and red and purple look fabulous together.

Now please be kind, I'm a knitter not a crocheter. The pattern was taught to me by my grandmother, I added the straps for to keep them on better.

That is really good-looking! Button and all.
I have steered away from knitting that pattern because I wasn't sure how closely the scarf would hug my neck. But yours doesn't seem to be letting any cold air in, so maybe I will try it.

Good work!
(Bartering is better than money.)

The trick is to just place the button higher if you want a snugger fit, lower for a looser one. I placed that thing like 4 times before settling on a spot.

This pattern is next on my "knitting to give my man a hint" project list. The colours you picked are just so cute! (also, woot! my 200th post!)

Oh my gods...  Shocked Must make some to match every outfit I have. Then I will be drinking my Starbucks in style! Awesome pattern.

I really love that scarf! & the button is perfect. What pattern did you use?


That would be the one. Unfortunately, I don't get to keep it. This is to give to the  girl that's been kind enough to let my honey crash at her house while he works on getting citizenship to live here with me.

The yarn was Red Heart Super Saver in red. The button was painted with my nail polish and I like how it breaks up the colour some.

What do you kids think?

I drop stitches all the time and I've been knitting since I was a little one. Just keep a crochet hook handy and you'd be good to go.

Two-generational knitting is so great. I've inspired my mum to take up knitting again after about a 20-year interval. I've never tackled socks though....well done!

It's more than 2 generations. It was my gramma and great-gramma who got me started on it. =D It's awesome to have something with the family, and my future little monster is probably gonna learn it the same way I did. Even my hubby knits now and he's addicted to socks as well.
