Y'all, I made shoes!!!!! This was not a project that was on the list.
These are the Seaside Espadrilles. The pattern was in Interweave Crochet Spring 2006 magazine,
The jute for the soles was very hard to work with, but they crocheted up quickly. I just used Lily Sugar n' Cream for the uppers. These are not for me, so are really big. It was an interesting exercise, whether I make them again is a slight possibility. Reading others project pages, they double soled to make them less floppy. I'm not, as I don't want to pick up the jute again any time soon!
So that was my only finish. I continue to plug away at several projects and am getting ready to start a Boxy by Joji Locatelli. I'm going to join her Fall KAL. I didn't even know about the KAL until the Grocery Girls mentioned it. I had just bought yarn for Boxy, so figured, why not? The Grocery Girls are going to also have a Sweater KAl, so I can double dip....I may start a few other projects.
I have startitis....but school also starts this week....so probably not!
I think that is it today.....I will catch you all again next week. I have to catch up on reading some blogs..
