Today....A PAIR of Slippers

I actually got a PAIR of slippers done. I took the strap off the first one because I really didn't like the way it looked. When I get ready to do the straps...I think I will do two at one time so that they match. The pattern calls for crochet edging around the top and then crochet the strap. Well, my lack of crochet skill has me trying to figure out another way to edge it and do the strap.

They are very soft and actually pretty comfortable. I need to dig into my stash and see if I can find some contrasting color to do the edging...they look rather plain in all white. I'm sure I have more Lion Brand Homespun in my stash somewhere. There may even be another pair in the future if I find something a little darker. Okay, short post today...still not feeling 100%. I think I have decided that this is a sinus thing...woke up with another awful headache today. It's a little better now. I really need to kick this thing so I can get down to some serious knitting. I am so behind and going for days not knitting is so unlike me. I need someone to give me a swift kick in the behind to get me back on track. lol

Sometimes simple is better. The contrasting trim would be fun depending on the mood. I tend to gravitate towards pinks and purples so don't ask me.
