I crocheted these adorable slippers for Morgan for Easter. They are from the same design as last pair, and they are from the same yarn as my symmetric cardi - Valley Yarns Northampton. I think this will be my go to worsted weight yarn. The colours are great and the price is right.
I just cannot get over how cute they are. Seriously. Gorgeous!
In spinning news, I've spun up some corriedale that I've had in my stash for a while. Its from Etsy seller RoaringBravado and its called Frozen treats. Its funny because pastels are totally not my colours but I really like this, and I had to cast on right away.
I ended up with about 180 yards of DK weight yarn and I immediately thought that they had to become mittens. I'm not really going by a pattern or anything. I'm just basing it on a pair of mittens that Amy was given for Christmas a couple of years ago.
