WIP Wednesday: Valentine Slippers

This year, since I have no Valentine buying me goodies, I decided to give myself a present.
Happy ol' hooker, me, (I swear I still knit, too) went ahead and started crocheted myself some tootsie covers.

Using plain ol' red Paton's Classic from the stash, and a size E hook, I chose some cute Mary Jane Slippers, pattern available for free here.
Turns out that the day was quite busy and there wasn't enough time to finish the pair, but I am quite sure I'll have them done for FO Friday.
 I love these little buttons I found in my stash drawer.

Today I plan on hitting up the chocolate sales, crocheting the second slipper, and hopefully getting to work on my Some Cloudy Days. Yes I do imagine this is how quiet and peaceful my day will be. My imagination is a great and wonderful place. I picture a steaming cup of tea in an all-white background like in yoga magazines. HA!

Anyway, as always, check out more works in progress at Tamis Amis.
