For Her Little Piggies…(*ETA: links to patterns)

Aquamaryjanes2

Meet my new crochet obsession – toddler maryjanes.  I used kitchen yarn (cotton) for added structure and durability.  Unfortunately, I haven’t found a great selection for cotton yarn, and the few I have found are variegated.  Anyone have a favorite online yarn shop?  I made the first pair (pictured, above) for E.  I made this "sherbet swirl" pair  for her pseudo-cousin Em. (is it weird that I re-name the yarn?  and are we the only ones with cousins who aren’t actually blood-related?).  I am so  glad I learned to crochet – it was the perfect creative outlet on-the-go.

*ETA: I modified and used the concepts I’d learned after attempts from several patterns.  My faves are the ones I listed as MaryJanes II, III, & IV.

LauraJ - It’s too bad you don’t live in Canada, Bernat is a very great yarn company. Try Herschner’s online.

Keri - OH MY GOSH. THESE ARE TOOOOOOOOOOOOO CUTE.

Andrea - Crystal,
I don’t know if this is exactly what you are looking for but this is the link to the sweetest little yarn store right down the street from me: http://www.kyarns.com/ I bought my mother-in-law, who is amazing at knitting and crocheting as well, some gorgeous bight pink variegated wool skeins and a soft pink cotton skein there as a Christmas present. She loved it. We always frequent that store when she comes to visit. She made Eve and I matching purple hats from the pattern you had a few posts back with some wool I purchased there. They have a quite large selection of cotton yarn for socks etc. and they are absolutely beautiful there. Hope it helps.
