First of all, I'm a crochet pattern junkie. I buy patterns like they're going out of style. It's a very serious illness...that I love. As a result, I've got patterns coming out of my ears. Thank God for sites like Ravelry, where I can store them because I forget....
But, ever so often, I'll run across a crochet pattern that reminds me that I'm still very much a beginner. I look at it. It looks too complicated. I file it away for a future session, when I can thoroughly torture myself with its difficulty.
Last Saturday, I woke up, wanting to crochet like I'd lost my mind. I looked for a pattern I'd been putting off and ran across the Simply Summer sandals pattern by Two Girls. I was determined to make them, no matter how hard it was, double soles and all!
Well, wouldn't you know, the difficulty only existed in my head? I guess I'm something of a mental drama queen. I whipped those things up in no time at all, and I must say, I am thrilled with the results!
If you're a crocheter, check out their site. They've got some wonderful, darling baby booties! You'll love them!
