Like I said last week, I’ve been wanting to make these slippers for a looong time and I’m so happy that Scheepjes has created the perfect yarn for them!

To get prepped for the pattern, you’ll need 2 balls of Chunky Monkey* for the adult version and just one ball for the kids.

The photos you see here are of myself and my daughter – my husband also has a pair, but I haven’t seen him in the daylight for ages – curse the grey Dutch winter (which only officially starts in a couple of days). I’ll share some photos if I ever see him in the day again 🙂

WIP – Winter Crochet Project – Your Last Crochet Slippers?

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.

Until now.

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!
