It's my own fault, really. I browse. People pin interesting things. I repin.
I created a board called "Knit/Crochet Ooohs". (I have no idea if that link will work or not.) The name is self-explanatory. If something makes me go "oooh", I probably am going to want to try it.
One day, I found an example of barefoot sandals. I didn't know this was a thing. Later, I searched it out. Google. Ravelry. It's a thing.
That's when my designer mind engaged. All the examples I saw were crocheted. But couldn't one knit a pair? So, after much plotting and planning (there's a reason I'm a plotter when it comes to writing), I made up something I kind of like.
I tried them on. They are so much more fun than I thought they'd be.
(Apologies for the photo quality. And my feet. I took the picture in front of a mirror that needs to be cleaned. It's hard to get a picture of your own feet. Really hard.)
I'm debating whether or not to include these in my shop. Well, not this pair, but make up some in other colors.
What do you think?
