Keeping Warm

 Sunday at Tamdoll's 

When it’s cold outside, you want something warm on, inside:

I made shoes!

I think this is the coolest project!! I made shoes!  The first attempt didn’t go so well.  Instead, I changed to this moccasin style (sans fringes) and they were easy to do.  Pattern here on Ravelry.  I still have some of this yarn left, I think I’m going to try to squeeze another pair of slippers out of it.

I’m trying to learn how to use all the tools in my Paint Shop Pro software – having fun with it, but it is time-consuming!  Very grateful for the Vladstudio Tutorials – I just sometimes need to figure out how to adjust Photoshop instructions to PSP’s.
