Modified

I redid the slippers, shortening the foot area and lengthening the ankle. Crochet really allows you to modify however you wish as you stitch along.

It gave me an idea of how to start stitching the wool (which is unspun roving) to the soles. Then i double chained four rows around, then single chained just along the front of the slipper (a half moon shape). And continued back and forth in that area with single chain, skipping a few stitches every so often to decrease (did i mention i know very little about the rules of crochet?). Once the top area of the foot was done, i began to stitch around the ankle (double chaining now) until the height i desired.
