Merino Wool Crochet Slippers

I haven't posted for a while as I've been adjusting to some changes in my routine but I wanted to share my latest finished personal project - these fab crocheted slippers that I made all for myself!

I have had the pattern for these for quite a long time and managed to find some merino yarn in my stash that worked with the pattern too. I've never made slippers or socks before, but found the pattern (a mix of double and treble crochet worked in the round) to be fairly easy and quick to make. 

Since this was a stash project, I changed the colours from the original pattern but I really like the contrast of the green and purple that I used. I hear that merino wool regulates body temperature, wicks away sweat and eliminates odours so it's something of a super-fibre and probably great for slippers. They've certainly served me well so far and haven't slipped off my feet as I feared they might and the big pompoms make me feel very jolly.

In progress
I'm looking forward to making some more things for myself and others soon, but until then I leave you with one final picture! I'm considering making another pair in the reverse colourway (mostly purple with green pompoms) but feel that might be overkill - what do you think? :)

Bye for now,
Sarah :)
