barefoot sandals ....

The weather has finally turned so I wasn't being overly optimistic when I recently made myself a pair of barefoot sandals.  They're very comfy to wear.

These are the supplies you'll need to make them  (I used a
metallic elastic cord),  and here are the instructions:

Row 1:  Thread 12 beads onto stretchy crochet thread
Row 2:  Chain 30 and join with slip stitch to form a ring.
Row 3:  In ring, 5 double crochet, chain 1 and turn
Row 4:  2 double crochet, slide bead up to hook, 3 double crochet, chain 1, turn
Row 5:  Repeat until you've used 5 beads.
Row 6:  5 double crochet, chain 3, bring bead up to hook, chain 8, bring bead up to hook, and repeat till all beads are used; chain 3, and join to other side.
Supplies:  1.25 mm crochet hook, stretchy crochet thread, and 12 (8mm) beads 
Have fun! 

Yesterday we spent the day at the cottage - what a difference a week makes .... look at all the open water!
