Cozy Crocheted Slipper Boots
There’s nothing like a well-crafted pair of cozy crocheted slipper boots to keep your feet warm on those cold, blustery days. Imagine snuggling up by the fireplace with a pair of these beautiful booties on. Even better, imagine crocheting a pair for yourself, as well as for your friends and family. Wouldn’t they make the perfect birthday gift or Christmas present? Or you could even make a bunch to sell at craft fairs or give away to charities. Once you learn a specific craft, like crocheting hats, mittens, or slipper boots, there’s no end to what you can do with your creations. But, first things first: how do you learn how to crochet? It’s really not as complicated as you first might think.
Learning how to knit and crochet is not only a great way to hone in on your creative abilities, it’s also a way to boost your productivity. You can knit and crochet anywhere, anytime – on the bus, in the waiting room, while you’re on the phone, or when you’re watching television. You might as well give your hands something to do when you’re just sitting around, right? Just by using a few simple crafting tips and tricks, you can be crocheting in no time. But, before you start your big crafting adventure, there are a few things you should know, just so you don’t strain yourself when you first get going. Always make sure you have lots of light, so you can see what you’re doing. It’s also really important to pay attention to your posture while you are crocheting.
A lot of people have a tendency to round their shoulders once they start losing themselves in the craft. It’s important to have a comfy chair while you’re crafting, but be mindful of your posture and keep those shoulders straight. It’s also a wise idea to take breaks once in a while and to stretch your fingers. Crocheting and knitting can easily become addictive pastimes, and hours can go by before you realize you haven’t stopped for a rest. Fingers and hands can get sore and strained with time, so make sure you take a break at least once every fifteen to twenty minutes.
Stretch out those fingers and roll your wrists. Also, it might sound funny, but drinking lots of water as you knit also helps you stay limber and hydrated. You’ll want to have a dedicated craft bag for your current project, where you keep your yarn and crocheting supplies. That way, they won’t be scattered all around the house and you’ll know where to find them when you need them. Keep the bag by your favourite chair or by the door if you’re planning to go out. That way, you can just pick up where you left off and get going.
