I wish I could say I accomplished more, but I got what I needed. And Aidan is so happy with his new slippers. I will try to get some better photos of other projects I worked on soon.
This was the first time I used this pattern, called "Non-felted Slippers" which I got from Ravelry. I made them just as the pattern suggested - same needle size and everything. I made them with a couple of shades of a chunky weight yarn that I have had for a while. The pattern says they make a ladies size medium and with a 5.5 mm needle they are plenty big enough for me and will fit Aidan for at least a year or two. If I make myself a pair, I will go down one needle size.
