November inspiration for Christmas socks, slippers, booties, as well as accessories and gifts



Welcome to my blog and also to the new monthly report for the month November.

A lot happened again in October, and I'm glad that I managed to crochet and visit the Vlnika store in the busy schedule, and I'm here again with a new reportage and, I hope, with a bit inspiration for Christmas gifts.


Do you know Slipper day? Slipper day is the day when you put on your slippers in the morning on your way to work or school! By doing so, you help spread awareness of mobile hospice care and show that you support its purpose. Every year, we let the people around us know that mobile hospices help our loved ones to live with dignity at home until the end. Slippers symbolize the safety and comfort of the home.

This year we had Slipper Day on 11th of October 2023 and I had wanted to get crocheted slippers for myself and my colleagues, and I found out that I had given away all the pieces and had to start making new pairs. And it was also one of the impulses for visiting Vlnika and searching for new yarns.




My family and my friends and colleagues often write to Santa about crocheted booties, slippers or socks.
And I always try to please them with some new patterns, styles or ideas.

That's why when I visited Vlnika shore, I focused on sock yarn and chenille yarn, from which I like to use for crocheting booties and slippers, and I think I found a lot of them!
Vlnika shop surprised me again with an amazing offer, colors, full shelves and new yarns.

In addition to socks, I also wanted to choose yarn for crocheted Christmas decorations, such little things and joys that are suitable for giving to colleagues at work or friends.



Thanks to my work in the non-profit sector, I have been interested in the work and projects of ELPIDA for a long time. Who is ELPIDA:

Elpida is a non-profit organization that has been supporting seniors in an active life since 2002. It runs 2 educational centers in Prague, the nationwide free telephone line for seniors 800 200 007, publishes the VITAL magazine, has the women's choir Elpida and is behind the Grandma's Socks project, records the OLD's COOL podcast, organizes exhibitions, workshops and much more. It creates opportunities for active and fulfilled aging and we accompany seniors through challenging life situations.


And it is the Grandma's Socks project that I would like to present to you in my report. I filled my bag with the left-over balls, made an appointment with the wonderful lady Joanna Mazal and spent a pleasant morning at their office in Smíchov, where the socks are knitted, sorted, packed and shipped.

You can find more about this project here - you can send balls that you have at home as well as new ones. Or join the knitting grandmothers, of whom there are now more than 200, and knit socks according to your own or according to already designed patterns, and thus help a good project.

Or buy Grandma's Socks, which give work and the joy of feeling useful to more than 200 knitters. By buying them, you will also support other seniors from the Elpida Center.



I really like crocheting with a bunch of enthusiasts like me, so I came to the meeting of the McHáček group and left with my head full of new ideas. All the girls crochet and knit wonderful things, Miss Jarka even brought us to show us how to work with pure wool, how to weave and wind.

I will send you the next event again and you can join. Or take a look at the group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1142873502919614
