Important slipper heel link

I have found instructions on how to make a heel for slippers on a loom. I don't want to loose the instructions so I created the link and I can click the title and it will take me straight to the page. Duh! Did I need to tell myself that? Yes! Anyway, I haven't tackle this sadly to say but I am going for it this time. I want to make my hubby some slippers with a nice heel. The website is I want to get myself a nice big Infinity Rake. Hoping hubby will get it for me before he comes home!!!!

Another throw2gether sweater

Hala and I made this sweater for her nephew. We were able to design it very easily. We had a lot of fun crocheting this. It only took us a week. It's cold in the evenings in Egypt so we wanted to make something very warm. We used N & J hooks and ofcourse tripled the yarn for fast results.

I am still going to school at the Nile Center in Nasr City. I am taking my final for the second level of arabic. Hopefully if I do well I will be in third level arabic. My reading has imporoved so much and I have learned so many words. But there is still so much to learn. I had to buy "Al-Mawrid" a huge 125 egyptian pounds. A big fat arabic-english dictionary. I needed major help with translation and this is helping me big time. My younger kids are all fluent in arabic now and are way ahead of me especially in conversation. So far, its all worth it!!
