I have the bestest friends ever! Robyn and Jane sent me a surprise package!
They had no way of knowing that I am plum out of lip balm and that I love Alba natural cosmetics and yet somehow they knew. Thanks m’darlins!
This distracted me from my slipper crises (I know – my life is so hard). I have a cheap pair of slippers from Old Navy that are slowly deteriorating but are completely necessary on our craptacular commercial tile floors. I bought some Plymouth Naturally to make the sweet Aran Isle Slippers.
Except they’re teeny tiny. I hate patterns that assume all women have the same size feet. I even made the soles longer to accomodate my size nines but I failed to pick up extra stitches for the upper. Boo to me. I guess I’ve inadvertantly started my Christmas knitting early. I only know one lady who has smaller feet than me so she will be the lucky recipient.
I’m trying to tell myself that I’m relieved because really these would be a pain in the ass to slip on at four a.m. when I inevitably have to get up to pee. I have this pattern and I’ve purchased this one but I don’t think I have enough rogue skeins to complete either. Woe is me.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. I predict boredom over here because Chris is working nights. Pity party for one it is!
