I'm so proud of myself- not only did I manage to make both slippers yesterday, I did SO many things I've never done before! I've never made socks or anything sock-like before, so this was my first provisional cast-on, my first short rows and w&t, my first turning a heel, my first cable cast-on... I just kept going back to my computer to the wonderful videos on this site! THANKS, AMY!!

Also, I'm sorry, I can't remember who posted these just before Halloween, but thanks! You're the one who inspired me to make them for my daughters!

So, these are for my 3 yo, I still need to make a pair for my 5 yo.

Forgot to add- these are twinkletoes (http://www.knitty.com/issuewinter06/PATTtwinkletoes.html) ballet slippers from knitty.

Isn't it satisfying when you figure out all those tricks?

LOL I know what you mean! I'm hoping I get Emily's slippers done before they fall victim to that 'I'll get to them next' syndrome!

I am the one that made a purple pair for my daughter, who was a ballerina for Halloween. They're fast and fun to knit!

They do look nice; warm too. Love the color that you chose. MAYBE I can get a pair done for The Kate before Christmas :)

So cute! What size did you knit? Will you make the same size for your 5-year-old. I'm sure my dgd, age 4, would love a pair.

I knit the toddler size for my 3 yo who has tiny feet... but they're very nearly too small. I'm knitting the child size for my 5 yo- will let you know how they fit when I finish. They're very stretchy, so that makes them pretty flexible size-wise. :)

Thanks for all the nice comments!
