Yarnivorous beagle strikes again

Dan and I returned home from the farmers market on Saturday to find unraveled yarn all over the living room floor...the beagle also chewed up a set of needles....somewhat miraculously, the knitting was left unharmed. So I scooted on over to Imagiknit for a new set of needles, and finally got some help on the crochet edging of my second Sweet Mary Jane. Six months after the first slipper was completed, here is a finished pair!

A finished pair

The crochet edging does not quite match...still not sure how I did it on the first slipper, so was unable to replicate it...and the straps are kind of messy, but I am happy that I can finally wear them! These will keep my feet warm during the foggy summer days...

Pattern: Sweet Mary Jane, available here
Yarn: Lamb's Pride Worsted in Old Sage and Manos del Uruguay for edging and strap
Needles: US7 bamboo DPNs
Modifications: I left the button off the straps and only did one row of crochet edging.

Oh no! She must have been so upset you didn't take her, or does she love the taste of yarn?
