Ravenclaw Slippers

These are the blue and grey slippers which I made for Sunday for her birthday. I used the pattern for Ridiculously Easy Mary-Jane Slippers, but made them in Stockinette rather than Garter knitting. I also didn't make a strap, as I had hardly any grey yarn left over. However, they are a very snug fit, so should be OK, and I threaded the left-over yarn around the top of the slipper to act as a drawstring just in case:

I realised once I'd made them that they are in the colours of Ravenclaw House from Harry Potter, and that as Sunday likes Ravenclaw it made complete sense to call them that! I think she likes them too - well, I got 'yeahsalright' from a teenager ;)
