This is really how I design something...
Monday night while my husband was doing a little work from home, I sat on our bed with my crochet hook and 2 colors of yarn and started to make what turned out to be my latest design, baby tennis shoes made to look just like the real thing.
I didn't write the pattern down until the next day because it was all in my head.
I made the sole, then made the 3-stripe sides and didn't have any idea how I was going to turn it into a shoe...but as I looked at it and moved the pieces around, the design just came together. It's rather like playing Scrabble...you have these letters on your tray and you don't know what words they can form until you begin to shuffle them around...and then you can just see the words taking shape.
My husband thinks these little shoes turned out "really awesome." I'd love to hear your comments also!
