New Shoes

I have been busy crocheting some new shoes for Monique for when the weather turns cooler, I have now idea when that will be.  I bought this pattern from Hook Candy through Ravelry and have had to play around with it a bit to get their right size.  The problem is that the pattern calls for worstered  yarn, which is equivalent to about 10ply.  In Australia this is very hard to come by and as the country has millions of sheep I just can't bring myself to buy wool from overseas.  (Maybe New Zealand doesn't count as overseas.)


I had to hunt around to find the self covered button kits I wanted.  I needed to be able to leave a bit more fabric on the edge as I was using Chirimen fabric from Japan.  The weave of this is a bit loose and it tends to frey.

Also, I have been looking at the work of Jimmie Mr Bride.  I really like his intergalactic quilts and he has made a video story about some of them.
