That's a darling slipper. The pair will be 2x cute!

Is it possible you could use a provisional cast on, then BO those sts as well as the last ones you knit to make it match? There are various stretchier BOs that you might look at also. I'm sure we can come up with links if you wish.

I've been following this thread but as I've not done baby shoes or slippers or booties, I wasn't sure what's what with the pattern. The not stretchy enough BO I'm familiar with.

BTW your avatar.

Yes, provisional cast on is usa good way to match the cast on and cast off. Here, it might be easier to do a cable cast on and the usual bind off (see this article, method 3).
The slipper is adorable! Very nicely done and well worth all your effort.

Thank You! I would love to experiment with different BO's to find one that works better for me...in different situations. I will look around for some other How To's. Thanks for the Avatar compliment...It makes me smile!

Thanks everyone for the help up to this point...I am going to finish the other slipper this weekend, and hopefully sew in some ribbon. I will also post the name of the book and the pattern once I get off my lazy rear axle!
