Look what I made yesterday!
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 ballet slippers from knitty.

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

It is satisfying! And... the pattern includes an adult size!
