Slipper and a DNA Cable

So...many thanks to LJ user trillian42, I whipped up a (still haven't done the second one) stash buster slipper! :) I think I'll make a bunch of these and give them as Christmas gifts. I remember getting knitted slippers from my neighbor when I was a little girl and loving them so I'm hoping my friends and family will enjoy them. Also, the other day I decided to overcome my fear of cables and pick up some needles and yarn and learn how to make them. So I knitted a swatch with two repeats of the DNA cable and I'm thrilled with how it came out. I've successfully overcome my fear of both cables AND charts!
Note...all these small easy projects are a distraction from "Topsecret" from the Fall '02 Knitty because I'm frustrated with it. I've started it 4 times and all 4 times by the time I finished the first inch I was missing two stitches. So I decided to take a break from it until I'm less frustrated.


Two of my first slipper =D This is LB wool ease in green heather double stranded with LB wool ease in dark green variegated.
