Slippers...Okay, correction...Slipper

I have one of my slippers finished and the other one is OTN. There's not much going on here other than rain so I figured I would go ahead and post a photo of the finished one rather than going AWOL for days again. I would have preferred to use a color other than white but this was on the top of my stash and easiest to get to. The pattern calls for a contrasting color to do a crochet edge and for the strap. I still can't crochet that well and since this was a "test" pair anyway, I just opted out of the edging and did my strap in the same color. I want to do another pair in a darker color and add something on the bottom to make them wearable out doors.
Here's a side view for you. They're really cute and comfortable from what I can tell just wearing the one...lol
Please ignore the PJs, it's what I wear everyday around the house. As long as you're inside, who cares what you wear, right? You got to be comfy when you're knitting.
Don't worry, they're easy to knit....you know I wouldn't be doing it if it weren't....come on now. If you can handle double points and K2tog, you can do this one. The only seaming is on the heel.
I also came across another pattern on Ravelry that you should check out. It's definitely an original and I so want to try this one too!! Check out this awesome idea for recycling!!
Too Cute!

That is one adorable slipper! My problem is I don't know how to use double-pointed needles, but I CAN crochet! Is it hard to learn how to use them?

I never really had the patience for knitting or crocheting. My mom really tried to domesticate me (sewing, canning, knitting,crocheting...Blah!) I still rebel!
But you one slipper looks really good! Maybe I could buy some from you and pass them off as mine! Oh mom would be so proud!! Ha HA! Keep up the good work.
Blessings!
