Slippers and Hat Showcased This Week

Thanks to everyone that helped out by reading my articles to help my fellow freelancer, Rissa Watkins.  I just missed my $200 goal, but a friend threw in the few bucks needed to make the mark.

This week I'm working on some slippers from my slipper sock pattern.  I've got one pair done except for cinching the toe and making the laces, but that'll only take a minute or two.  I need another pair so I'll have to hunt through my stash for what yarn I have on hand to put together into something halfway coordinated.

I'm also working on a hat in Hobby Lobby's black fleck ILTY.  I'm modifying a pattern to fit a young lady that wanted something with sort of a flapper look.  I think I have the pattern that'll work, but it will take a bit of tweaking.

What's up with you this week?

To play along on Work-in-Progress Wednesday, make your blog post for Wednesday be about something you're working on - some type of craft, renovation project, landscaping, even that novel you're writing. You can play along even if it’s not Wednesday; I leave each WIP up until the following week. Copy the code below Rosie's picture and paste it into your blog post so that others can follow too, and see the rest of the projects that are posted here.

Make sure to click 'You are next' below to add your link so my readers can follow it to your blog post.

Post is up for this week.
You do stay busy too...isn't it nice?
We are supposed to have sewing club at church next week, but it looks like really bad weather will be here, so I'm guessing the lady's will go ahead and call it off. I sure hope not, as I love going each month!

I'm out of the loop with the hook for a while..temporary I'm sure. I do have a afghan I started 2 years ago, which needs joined and an edging put on..I am going to finish up this year...I ran out of steam on it...I don't like joining...that is my project until I begin another..by then I may be ready....Have a great day.

Love the idea of a slipper sock and saw your pictures, but after clicking multiple times on all your links, never did find where you had the actual pattern (stitch count etc). I've made many pairs in a similar fashion (without the ties), and less socky...if there's such a word. lol But, thought this would be a good quick one to post on my blog for this months focus...slippers. This months project is Toasty Tootsies.

Sandy, I'm not sure what you're missing. The link to the pattern is in the second paragraph, click the words 'slipper sock pattern'. It comes right up for me.

It should bring you here: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2270893/quick_and_easy_slipper_pattern_to_crochet.html?cat=24
