Remember that yummy brown yarn that I bought, just because? And I planned to make something for myself with it? Well, I finally decided what I wanted to make. So, I browsed some patterns. I'm not a good pattern follower, but I like to look at them to get ideas, them go out on my own from there. So, here it is...well the beginning anyway. What is it?
Well, I ALWAYS have cold feet, especially at night (just ask Brian). So I thought I would try my hand at making a pair of slippers. I have never made a pair of anything. I have been too afraid of trying to make to of anything that are actually supposed to match. This is the first slipper that I finished last night. When Nate saw it, he informed me that I should make another one. What a great idea!
So here is the other one I made today. IT MATCHES! I was so excited. I added a little cuff, because it seemed to need something. They are not the prettiest things I've made, but they are toasty. And they are the first thing I have ever made for my self.
And here they are on my big ol' feet. I love 'em!
I also finished the scarf I promised my dad. But I cannot find the cord to my other camera, which the photo is on (this happens every time I clean house, lol). Two more things down on my Procrastinator's Challenge!
