okay, so there isn't a pic of yo-yos but ...

I decided to get a wee bit distracted instead. I have this ripper bonza pattern from 1943 that was a bugger to find. But as you will see, I found it. It then came to me in a flash today that instead of burying myself in yo-yos (like I should), I would maybe make me some yummy 1943 slipper thingys (like I shouldn't).

All of this with the plan of making some up for pressies for friends so of course I have to make up a prototype. Its great the way to justify spending time not making yo-yos. The pattern wasn't in the right size at all, so adjustments had to be made. I won't touch the slippers until the weekend or I'll never get Little Bow ready in time. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Here the pictures of my guilty efforts.
