I made these adorable Mary Jane Slippers from the pattern on the wonderful purl bee blog. They came out a little bit boxier than I was hoping (because I knit with a larger guage) but are perfectly comfy for around-the-house wear!
I really like how the purl bee's pattern are beautifully photographed step-by-step for us visual learners. I have trouble following directions in general, so having clear photos to illustrated each step is a very helpful way for mastering some of the trickier aspects of a project like this -- like knitting an attached i-cord. Simple as these slippers are, I got to learn a lot while making them!
p.s. it's really nice out today!!
