Slipper battle

Yesterday, my mom and I got some yarn and decided to make baby slippers since Yannick’s feet keep growing and winter is coming…

And here we are now: dueling fiercely, heavily armed with knitting needles and crochet hooks! 😉

While I am certain that my mom is winning in the beauty category, I am hoping that I will at least get some points for speed.

We’ll keep you updated on how the battle ensues…

While my mom is still knitting, my crocheted slippers are done!

I know they look a little goofy, but they are warm, they fit (with some room for winter growth) and – most importantly – they stay on the monster’s feet. He was wearing them all day today and didn’t take them off a single time, yeehaw! 😉

There we go, the knitted slippers are ready, too! And aren’t they so adorable?! I didn’t promise too much, did I? Good job, mom!

Their only downside: they turned out a little tight – but actually I don’t mind at all, I simply placed an order for another pair in the next bigger size! 😉

    Those look really comfy!

    Next time if you make a wrong size, make them FAR too big instead of too small and I can wear them 😉
