Pink Kimono Slippers

I started these adorable little slippers months ago, for some reason (which I am totally oblivious to) I stopped  in the middle I don't usually do that. I found the project partially finished in my yarn stash so I took it out, took it apart and started over. You might be askin why I took it apart and there is a simple answer for that, because I forgot what row I was on and I really dislike goin back and trying to count out the rows it's a pain in the but! That's the same reason I don't like stopping in the middle of crocheting.

Some of you crocheter's out their are probably sayin " there are row markers out there", or" why didn't ya just mark your rows with yarn" , the answer to that is I just don't. I don't have any row markers (little rings you can attach to your rows), and I always end up pulling out the yarn I use for markers by accident. The only time I mark my rows it when I am using a pattern that's worked in rounds that are not joined. Anyway back to the pretty little subject at hand these adorable little slippers.

They turned out really cute. The yarn is a mixed fiber it has acrylic,polyester and nylon in it. These shoes are so stinkin soft I want a pair! My oldest actually asked me if I could make her a pair of these, I think I will have to play with the pattern(since it only goes up to  18 months) and see what I can come up with.
