With some practice you can knit not only socks but also shoes. Knitted shoes are an absolute hit, especially during the cold season. Women tend to have colder season feet and icy toes. Knitted shoes are also a perfect substitution for bed slippers to keep the feet toasty at night. They are also great foot warmers that can be used while relaxing on a couch.
