Sit'n'Stitch: Wingin' it

This week I set out to design a little slipper for Aviva to keep her tootsies warm during the winter. I wanted them to come together quickly so I used some super bulky Lion's Thick and Quick yarn and a 9mm crochet hook to get the job done. I've never crocheted or knitted a baby shoe before (I've sewn a pair before) so it was a fun, learning experience!

This is just the first pair of my first pattern taken on my iPhone so I need to make a couple more pairs, make changes, and make sure I get the notation right and then I'll post some better photos with some better yarn etc. (This is from a frogged hat from a couple years ago...) A couple of things I've decided to change? I'm using an 8mm hook next time and I have some fresh Loops and Threads Charisma to try it out with. 

I also have some cute wrist warmers made from an impromptu pattern I made that I'll share tomorrow! Until then.


I'd love to hear from you and will reply happily!
