My 3rd package!  
Thank-you so much to my secret pal smellen_of_troy !!

I was out of town working way up north in Fort McMurray last week, so I wasn't home when the package came. My husband taunted me with text messages saying that I had lots of cool stuff in the mail.

I was so excited to open this, and I LOVE both the delicious skein of misti alpaca and the SLIPPERS!!! she made me.

I am often cold, and wear slippers in the house all the time unless it is a boiling summer day. In Canada, it's rude to wear your shoes in somebody else's house, and I have taken to hauling my cheapo/old-man/bought-at-zellers slippers to my friends' houses.

These are so much cuter and convenient, and they will live in my bag at all times when not on my feet.

Here they are on my large feet (they fit very well):

They have the most adorable ladybug buttons:

I am not very bendy, but I got my husband to take a picture of my smiling face and one of the slippers at the same time:

You've spoiled me rotten, Smellen!

In honour of your semaine provincial de la fierte francaise: MERCI!!!!!

Awesome! Are those based on twinkletoes???

Yup, they are!
I'm not entirely sure why I decided to make them Mary Janes instead (it was probably so that I could use those buttons), but I think it worked out.

There's a pattern similar to those on craftster that I've used before, but I like how yours look better.

I haven't seen the one on craftster, but thank you! It's really just a modification of Knitty's twinkle toes.

De rien!
