It’s so cold, I swear! I’ve lost some weight this year and an unexpected side effect is that I’m cold ALL the time! I bought a new winter coat, and had to buy a down jacket to go under it, and it hasn’t even frozen here yet!
So to that end, I’m making slippers. I’m too cold and I need them.
Plus, they’re slippers I’ve been thinking about making as long as I’ve been crocheting. That might seem strange; why haven’t I made them before, you ask. Well, I’ve tried. But the truth of the matter is, I haven’t had the right yarn to do it.
This Scheepjes Chunky Monkey is the perfect yarn for the last pair of slippers you’ll ever need. I raved about the yarn already, go take a look if you missed it.

My neighbour whom I loved as a grandmother knitted me slippers when I was a kid. They were made with scrap yarn that was truly hideous, but I LOVED those slippers. They lasted me years and years, until I eventually wore through them and I think my mum threw them away while I wasn’t paying attention.
But I’ve been looking for a replacement pair for literally twenty years!
And now I’ve cracked it. The slippers are being made and they’re going to fit everyone. Raina will have a pair, Maarten will have a pair, and we’ll be a family of matchy matchy dutchies.
Stay tuned, I’ll prove it to you in a few days!
