Dance your way into sweet dreams while wearing these slippers. A touch of lace on the toe will keep the adventurous knitter interested, while the colors of the beautifully hand dyed yarn flounce around the foot. Go ahead and pretend to dance with the sugarplum fairies if you want, we certainly won’t tell!
