We’re covered

 
Another pair finished.  

Eily grew out of his blue pair and Gabe gladly accepted the hand-me-downs.  I’m hoping we now have the full range from baby to largest kid’s size.

Slipper session

Every so often i go on a slipper bender, making several in a row and tweaking earlier patterns.

These are both sheepskin lined, one for infants and a new size of the crocheted uppers and leather/sheepskin soles. What’s most exciting is that I’ve begun working on a pattern for these, in adult and children’s sizes.

Padraigs, part two

We are at stage two of working this slipper design, using 1/2″ inch strips cut from wool sweaters unstead of roving. Thus, an entirely recycled affair.

The cut wool prior to crocheting:

Gabe sampling the single one:

And Gabe unimpressed with the dirt that wound its way in his diaper. Nothing to do with wool or slippers. Nor recycling for that matter.
