Comfy & Cozy

Earlier this year I taught myself how to crochet.  I used an online video tutorial and taught myself how to make a granny square.  Now I can make granny squares in my sleep!  They are so much easier than I thought they would be.  Since then though I have been wanting to learn how to crochet something different but for some reason crochet seems to scare me a bit.  So, on Friday I had a day off for the Gold Coast Show public holiday and decided to spend my day relaxing and teaching myself how to crochet something new.

Comfy Coral Slippers 

Yarn: Carnival Soft 8ply
Hook: 4mm (G)
Start/End Date: 2/9/11 - 3/9/11

Comfy Coral Slippers 

I used this tutorial from the lovely Oh My Good Knits blog.  This tutorial was fantastic!  The pictures made it so easy to follow and they worked up quite quickly too.  I am really happy with how they turned out and I am excited to try out some more crochet projects now.  I think I might make a few more of these too to add into some Christmas presents.  They are perfect for stash busting.  These ones only used half a ball of yarn!
