Christmas gifts!! (spoilers for family members dont look if you dont want to know)
The yarn selected for them wasn't my favorite the pattern I wrote before my husband picked out the yarn. It would have been a yarn I would have happily done a hat/scarf but not easy to work with on a detailed pattern with a small hook.
I was going to sew in the applique you see on one of the slippers to both but I was not happy with how they turned out. They are supose to look like the Kansas City Chiefs logo but no matter how many times I tried the arrow head shape it just didn't look right.
I am so happy with how everything else turned out it almost makes me want to scrap the red slippers but I dont have an other yarn the right weight (super bulky) to make them with out making some major adjustments to the pattern.
Infinity Scarf -- done with the basic tunisain stitch with a Q hook. The yarn was a mystery yarn that was set to me by a very generous Redditer from the r/crochet as part of a Fiber Therapy care package. I realy love that yarn depending on the lighting you see different shades and colors. It has dark blues and purples, with felt bobbles in light blues purples and a few sections have tiny tuffs of gold.
