  1. Thanks, Adrienne! All kinds of things I won’t even attempt! I don’t like failure.
    I kind of fudged the directions- I’ll show you Thursday. But they still look good, anyway!

  2. These are great! Good job, you are so crafty! I keep saying I want to learn to knit, it seems like a great activity to do while watching TV/movie. I think I should probably start with a scarf since it is straight. Any suggestions on how to books?

  3. Heidi. That’s not quite correct. I cannot knit! I’ve tried and tried. I’ll stick to sewing.
    Those slippers are really cute.

  4. Sarabeth- I’m not sure of a book to recommend, but there are some great video tutorials on the internet – google and look at some of them.
    Brydie- That is just what I thought! When I put them on I was tempted to go look in the mirror and see if my ears had pointy tips!
    Paula- Thank you! I do have creative moments- but really, I have difficulty cutting a straight line or sewing a straight seam- and mostly I have to take classes to learn how to follow a pattern. These were really easy.

  5. Those look great Heidi! Keep meaning to take a picture of the one and only pair of socks I knitted, under tutelage, to show you. I really don’t knit at all, but those look such fun. You are very clever 🙂

  6. Kim- thanks- they really turned out better than my expectations!
    Celia- my niece’s house is so chilly, that when I babysit, I always take a pair of slippers to wear. With my socks-I’ll wear them both! 🙂
    Joanna- I’m really NOT clever when it comes to knitting! Generally I can’t even follow a pattern- so these were a bit of a surprise!
    Cynthia- thank you, dear one!

    • Thanks Gloria-
      I love them too! I am not good with patterns- in fact I can hardly read them at all.
      I have a friend who teaches knitting classes, however, and I’ll see if she can figure this into larger sizes.

  7. Greetings from India, Heidi I love your pattern and it is so easy to make. Made three pairs of it and gifted away two of them to two to-be moms. Great work heidi and thanks a lot
    The pictures were of great help too.

    • Welcome, Ramya!
      I’m so happy to hear how much the small tutorial helped. Sometimes instructions come well from a novice!
      And thank you for letting me know- you have brought me much pleasure today
