SWEET, Slippers

crocheted slippersFeet come in many sizes, but big or small feet get cold. Slippers warm the heart and the feet. Here's our first round of slippers. They are darling, warm, and so nicely made. Thank you Liz (minnisoda over on Crochetville). Not the most artistic picture I've taken or even the most clear. yikes, must have moved my hand. I wanted to line these up so you could see the variety in sizes of these adodrable 8 pairs of crocheted slippers. By the time you read this schedule post (as 99.9% of the posts are); they are warming the feet of kids and mom's living in the temporary housing at Faith Mission.

I left Liz a message, regarding what pattern she used and when I find out will post, if possible. Looks like a good one that would go quickly and with the variety of sizing available what a bonus.

  1. Very nice! I recently had to throw out my old slippers and it seemed to take forever until the new ones came in. I missed them so much! I do have trouble with my feet though. I wear slippers all day long. I am so blessed to be able to just buy a new pair when I need one. These folks depend on our generosity to take care of their cold feet. Kudos to Liz for filling that need.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
