*Yawn* How have you been? I had a pretty great four weeks visiting my family on the other side of the country. It was nice to see everyone together, including my brother, who hasn’t been to UT in nearly five years, and his girlfriend.  We were together for my sister’s wedding, which was lovely and featured many lovely homemade items as centerpieces or decorations. My sister and her friend who helped decorate did a lovely job.

Early on we, the bridesmaids, were supposed to be barefoot for the wedding, which was held in a backyard. So, in response to this announcement I designed a new style for my barefoot sandals (pictured), just for the occasion. They’re named after my sister, Kayla.

For this project I used a Boye 00 (3.5mm) hook and size 10 crochet thread (Red Heart brand) in Ecru. The rows are worked back and forth, without stitching the ends together. Feel free to use any replacement (as in for the st) for the chs at the beginning.
