I am tickled PINK for several reasons. Squishy-soft, handmade slippers are a fav of mine and I am always on a quest to make awesome pairs. So when I heard Sonya of Blackstone Designs was doing slippers for her charity event I was super excited. I was even more thrilled when she asked if I would design a pair!
For those that don’t know, I have a HUGE addiction for PINK so I headed to my yarn supply in search of something yummy in the perfect shade. I found just the right color sitting on my desk from Red Heart yarns. Hmmm, perfect color, but didn’t really seem like slipper yarn. I thought I would give it a try and OH MY HECK!!!
Red Heart Boutique Infinity Yarn Is AWESOME Slipper Yarn! Who Knew?!

I think you will LOVE using Red Heart Infinity yarn. I chose the color “Blossom” which is a beautiful, rosy pink, for the adult pair. It makes a super soft pair of slippers.
I traded my crocs for happy feet while my assistant, Bookie, enjoyed a breezy, sunny day.
Extra warm feet (shown above) : start with one strand Red Heart Infinity yarn plus one strand super saver yarn. Work with both strands until cuff is started around opening of slipper. Continue with only the infinity yarn. Red heart super saver shocking pink matches Infinity Blossom really well.
Add a sole: Handmade slippers are SLIPPERY and should be worn on carpeted surfaces or please consider adding gripper fabric or similar item to the sole. Click HERE for some great suggestions.
This yarn is super soft and the slippers would make a nice gift for those who need an extra special hug.
