Here I am, in Italy. In Norway it's a big day today,
everyone celebrating the national day!
|Cord-Soles added to the crochet slippers!|
|I worked a heel-protection to the soles, and applied Sophie and Me-labels to the back of it!|
2in1-package for the Crochet-Slippers + Tutorial for the Cord-Soles.

|I had this beautiful, soft denim-yarn, and it came out as slippers. Exactly 2 skeins.|
Actually I think it's too soft. As I always apply soles to my slippers,
and wear them as street shoes, these are more "slipper-like" than I wanted
them to be. The yarn is Lovely Jeans/Filatura di Crosa, 100 % cotton.
The brand is no longer available. I wouldn't purchase it again anyway,
it was quite awkward to work with, splitting, as it was almost no twist to it.
But I'm happy with the design, all post-dcs and dcs.
Very comfy and fitting with the stretchy rib-pattern.
|The pattern is here on Ravelry|

|Wouldn't you like to make a pair of these for your next crochet slippers!|

|Some tomato plants, giving sufficient tomatoes for us this summer.|
|Adding some flowers.|
|Ugly dark red kitchen doors, painted cobalt-blue.|
Nice with the white walls. The door at right was painted the
evening before, placed flat on a table.
Practical, but not smart if you have misty and foggy nights!
This is what happens with wet oil-based paint,
when humidity accumulates on top of it:
|To re-paint! I had to do a 2'nd hand anyway.|
|Finished! Very happy!|
Painting doors like this is not fun!

and I think they look quite great!
Actually, I thing I'll design them for adults too!
Not for this season though. Next: Summer-shoes!
But first; Sophie's red bird-purse, and my winter head-band
and finger-less mittens for my white winter coat.
Not a lacy day!
