Back to these delights. They do look rather adorable on a pair of small boy's feet
Or not so small feet as these were made for newly eleven and nine year olds. The pattern is for a women's slipper, with notes on how to adapt for different sizes. I chose the simpler method and selected a smaller hook size. This wool - Wendy serenity chunky - is rather soft and floppy, which is lovely but I wanted something sturdier for slippers so the smaller hook size made for a much denser finish. With the added bonus that the slippers now fitted a child's foot.
I love the pads on the bottom. Happy birthday Reuben, Casper and Barney!
We have had a few enforced quiet weeks as P had another round of chickenpox (or chicky spots as they are fondly known in our house. Well, maybe not fondly). So much to catch up on, haven't even mentioned a January birthday with cakes and parties and makes, and a sofa finally recovered. Hopefully more later this week...
