Elfin Granny Slippers

I'm not talking about house shoes for a a little wee wizened old lady.  I'm not even talking about tiny slippers.  These slippers are big and they're loud and I like 'em.  A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned learning to crochet squares and my plan to crochet the granny square slippers I'd seen on Ravelry.

Are these really going to turn into slippers?

I finally finished them last night.  I think they are just too fun.  The pointy toes look a little like elf slippers.  What do you think?


Here are views of the side and the sole.  I decided to make the soles a little more durable/warmer, so I used a combination of single and double crochet rows instead of granny squares.


Ahh, time to sit back and admire the slippers -- while they are still free of Alfie hair!  (Maybe I should have made them the color of golden retriever . . .  .)
