I made Allison another pair of houseshoes. I have been in an experimental mode. The pattern for these came from an old pattern out of a Coats & Clark learning to knit book. The colors are Red Heart Soft in Fushia #9537 and Lion Brand Vanna in Charcoal Grey #151. A strand of each color is held together. I used size 10 1/2 needles. The fit turned out perfect.
