Unfortunately I didn't get photos of everything I've made since the holiday stress started because the deadline got shorter when I realized how long overseas shipping would take... During the stress things wrapped themselves before I could get a photo Wink

Mary Jane slippers for Tiff. The pattern can be found on the tutorial list. I did a quick swatch on 6mm needles and calculated how wide the piece would have to be by measuring from one side of my ankle, under my heel and to the other side. After about two inches I decreased one stitch at the beginning and end of the next two rows for some pairs. Then I followed the pattern to the end. K2tog for the last two rows, cut yarn and thread through remaining loops, pull tight and stitch up about 3-4 rows. Done! I made many different kinds and styles of slippers using that basic pattern. Something that also looks really cute is to knit in garter stitch about 3/4 of an inch beginning and end of rows and knit in stockinette stitch in between.

These slippers were the first pair I made before making the ones to be gifted.

These sweaters were very easy to make. I made them up as I went along with a lot of trying on and adjusting.

Wow!  You sure have been busy.  Everything looks fabulous!  I haven't tried the MaryJane slippers yet but you have inspired me.....I think my little girl would love them.
