Not So Daunting After All

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!


  1. Hi Gwen, These are adorable. New follower to your blog (followed you over from Facebook). What a beautiful page. Thanks for sharing, it's such a pleasure to read :)

  2. Thank you for reading my blog!

  3. I have yet to figure out Bonita's pattern for her Crocodile Stitch Booties. It frustrates me SO badly because I think I should "get it"! I can easily make the ones from TriflesnTreasures but not Bonita's. One of these days...

  4. I have that pattern, too. I haven't worked up the nerve to try it, either. Some day...maybe, lol!
