    You can always use a flip flop sole to sew the slipper to, or make an extra crocheted sole to hand sew on the bottom.
  7. Ombre yarn additions.

    I would start a new skein at a similar color change point. Save the cutoff section, for another yarn change, if needed.

    I've made birthstone angels with #10 crochet cotton for years, and enjoy doing that for a change. It's also easier to take on a trip than countless skeins of #4 yarn.

    I have found the homespun and some of the other 'specialty' yarns are easier to knit than crochet. I'm currently looking to see what size the Fast Track Yarn is. I wonder if it is #4 or #5.
