I'm a beginner knitter and I tried to make these slippers today:

http://www.10000greatideas.com/idea.php?idea=1087&sid=3

I didn't know how to do the step at the end that says "Work 14 rounds ending at one edge of the slipper, and then split the stitches over two needles. Knit two stitches together - one off of each needle." When i knit the stitches together off each needle the tip of my slipper looked pointy on the sides instead of rounded like in the picture. Can anyone explain how to do the last step or does anyone know why my slipper looked pointy? Thanks!

Looking at the pattern online, it sounds like a 3 needle bind off.    You're working in the round on 3 dpns in 2x2 rib until you get to the end of the toe.  Then you put all of your stitchesevenly on 2 dpns and bind off using the 3 needle bind off technique.  I think once you get the slippers on your feet, they will curve around your toes and look rounded.   Look for the 3 needle bind off technique on any knitting site or on you tube.   Hope this helps.
