I had this lovely soft and warm yarn on hand in gray and decided to use it for the slippers. Only when they were in progress did I learn her school colors are….wait for it!….gray and purple!! Of course, I had to find some blingy purple buttons. Hobby Lobby has a good selection.
On cool autumn and cold winter days, I love to sit and either crochet or knit while listening to a book on my Kindle. Occasionally I get up and walk on my treadmill since it has a plug in that plays the book through speakers. Most of the time I read book directly from my Kindle, but when my hands are busy, this is how I “read.”
I can’t describe how relaxing it is to work with yarn. My hubby, bless his soul, used to ask why I would crochet or knit while we watched television. I explained it helped me to relax. Sometimes I work on my project and think about all the blessings in my life. It’s a time to spend with God, especially when I’m working on a prayer shawl.
(The pattern can be purchased from CrochetDreamz. I used Big Twist Yarn purchased from JoAnn Fabrics. You’ll need two skeins as this pattern is worked with two strands of yarn.)
