turkish slippers, my very first crochet project!


my first crochet project, except for a square. While not perfect I am rather pleased.


This was from the Simple Crochet book by Erika Knight which I have blogged about before.


It was a good first project and I just knit it out of scrap cotton dishcloth yarn. This is a good beginner book.

There is an interesting slipper boot in this book that may be a good slipper for my HH. I made him some felted slippers years ago that have seen better days. Might be a good next project.

I am enjoying crocheting. I like it for Summer as I can use cotton yarn. In Summer I hate big, heavy, fuzzy, dark wool yarns. And it goes fast. I like things in Summer that are less of a commitment. If you want either of these books the links are below.
