New Slippers!

Today is new slipper day!  I can't remember which Christmas it was that I received my last pair of slippers from my mom, but let me tell you - it's been a while!  Yesterday the insoles finally wore out of the insides so I decided I could put it off no longer.  I had this yarn from a failed sock attempt (read: prego foot sock size) at Capernwray Harbour Bible School in 2010.  The unwanted sock was still sitting finished in my Mad About Ewe bag(they're a fantastic yarn store in Nanaimo - I'd recommend checking them out if you're in the area!), orphaned and without a mate.  So I frogged it (read: took it apart) and found this super quick and easy pattern on ravelry.  I love the fact that they are easily adjustable for every foot size.  This yarn is self-striping yarn so I'm sure it would've looked better in a different pattern, but you know me: always trying to use what I already have!  Hope you're having a wonderful Tuesday!  <3 JEM
