Aunt Maggie's Slippers »
Type of item: Accessory
What was your inspiration?
Not sure, exactly. Needed a hobby that wasn't a fad or take up too much room. Started noticing yarn at the thrift shop and super cheap, too. My Grandmother taught me to knit & crochet when I was very young. I looked up "how to" on YouTube and the rest is history....started March of 2011 and just can't stop. :)
What are you most proud of?
I am very proud of my slippers. If I don't like the color combo's I pick I just rip it all out and start over with a different combination. Most of my slippers are with 3 strands of yarn. Warmer and more cushion than the typical 2 strand. The orange pair I call "carrot cake slippers" because that is what the colors remind me of.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Whenever you are unsure of something, don't be afraid to rip out everything and do it all over again. It is worth it. I find I cannot finish a project if it doesn't "feel right". :)
