Hey, Look At That! It's Official!

I am a knitter!

Simple Slippers by Cori 2011.

Huzzah for warm toes!

Pattern:  Simple Slippers by my mom
Yarn:  Red Heart Soft in Guacamole and Turquoise (one skein of each, worked with a a strand of each color at the same time)
Needles:  Size 7 (double-pointed straights)

I finished these up last night.  My first knitting project, wow.  They took me a little under a week to make, and I couldn't be happier with them.  They came out a little bit long for my feet, but I seem to remember that that is actually normal for this pattern and that after a few washes they should stretch right on into the perfect shape.  If not, no biggie, I will know to make the next pair a few rows shorter.  They are not without their flaws, but I made them and that makes them awesome.  (Almost as awesome as the ones my mom made me, but not quite.)  This really is a super easy pattern and I suspect I will be making many, many more pairs of these in the years to come.

Also, my feet were super warm and cozy last night.

I win.
