What a practical little project this was. I’m going to Japan in a month and a half and the guest house I’ll be staying at for part of the time has a strict “change into slippers at the front door” policy. I’d been thinking of getting a pair of suede babouches, or maybe moccasins, but I’d also been thinking I should save some cash for when I’m over there. The compromise: $16 of yarn rather than whatever the real thing would have cost, plus some extra experience in crocheting.
I usually go for natural fibres but I’m glad I’ll be able to machine wash these. The yarn was a little prone to splitting, but not too bad and felt very nice in my hands. They look weirdly hilarious on my feet, but not a photogenic kind of weirdly hilarious. But overall, I’m quite pleased with them. Yay!
