I can't remember if I wrote that I won a pair of Pothies on a Facebook Page draw. Like you mostly do, you enter a draw without any expectations of winning but just like to take part anyway.
A little while later, I just casually looked on the site concerned and there in print was MY NAME! I had won the pair of slippers. If any of you remember how excited I was when I won a camera, you can imagine what I was like. Not only are these slippers hand made, but they are unique, made from many strands of multi coloured yarn and crocheted. They are hand made in Wales and the link is Handmade Slippers - Pothies I hope this works as I've never inserted a link in text before so it is new to me.
Here are a couple of photos of the slippers:
There is a rubber substance on the bottom, with a gap for the instep, presumably to keep the slippers flexible. Don't you just love the colours? If you look back at my Wingspan scarf I knitted you will notice the yarn seems to have very similar colours, with the scarf having a bit more green in. Did I choose the yarn? No, just listed a few colours I liked. I couldn't have chosen nicer myself.
They arrived wrapped beautifully with a yarn cord, and lovely labels, in tissue paper, boxed and I couldn't wait to open the box! Thank you, Belinda for making me such a lovely prize!
I'm not writing any more today, just leaving you with the pictures of my Pothies!
