Meet my new crochet obsession - toddler maryjanes. I used kitchen yarn (cotton) for added structure and durability. Unfortunately, I haven't found a great selection for cotton yarn, and the few I have found are variegated. Anyone have a favorite online yarn shop? I made the first pair (pictured, above) for E. I made this "sherbet swirl" pair for her pseudo-cousin Em. (is it weird that I re-name the yarn? and are we the only ones with cousins who aren't actually blood-related?). I am so glad I learned to crochet - it was the perfect creative outlet on-the-go.
*ETA: I modified and used the concepts I'd learned after attempts from several patterns. My faves are the ones I listed as MaryJanes II, III, & IV.
