New Favs Part 1

  This Christmas I had such big plans for my family and friends. Unfortunately I felt like the proverbial kid whose "eyes are too big for their stomach" and many items did not get made. Add to that a few that did get made that would definitely qualify for more Pintrosity posts :/
 The good, no make that great news, is that I found a few amazing new items I am adding to my Etsy shop. Today I am sharing my absolute, hands down, phenomenally cute new item! I made them for my grandson (planned to make them for all my nephews, my son and my other grandson but only one pair made it into being) and he loved them as much as me..... drum roll please...

 Aren't they awesome! When I saw the pattern I knew I had to have it! What I didn't factor in was that the pattern is written for adult Men so I had to play around with Yarn weights and Hook size to come up with a Child's size 12-2 (approx) Add to that all the pieces and assembly and that helps explain why I only got one pair made in time. 
The color options and size choices are endless and of course they could be made "girly"--actually I have some pink camouflage yarn that would be so cute. The slippers are for sale now in my Etsy shop or if you would rather make them yourself the pattern is sold here
