Drunk Karaoke

IMG_2215Tonight was my firm holiday party and it was much more fun than I expected. The food was delicious, the bar was open and a good time was had by all. Some had a better time than others and some let it all hang out. Through the years I've been to many holiday parties but this was the smallest and the most enjoyable. I guess that the small size coupled with the free flowing alcohol made it much looser and intimate. By the time they started the karaoke people were ready to put on a show. It was hysterical! I wish you could've been there.

IMG_2177Switching gears to something else entirely... do you remember seeing these slippers? The last time I showed them to you they were pre-felting. I love how they came out except for one thing. They're too small for my nephew. No worries. I'll just order up more yarn and make a larger pair. I probably left them in the wash just a little too long. Having to re-do these really isn't the worst thing. I'm not sure if you can see it but there's a small error in these. The pattern says that we should sew down the grey strip down to the inside to make the edge neater. I remembered to do it on the left slipper but not on the right one. As it happens, I like the way the edge stands up a little on the right one better anyway. Other than that one change I think that the rest of the pairs of slippers I make will be exactly like these. How many pairs will I make. The number 4 pops in my head. My nephew still needs a pair, if I'm doing some for him then I'll make some for my niece too. Then of course my girls saw them and thought that they'd like new slippers too. Thankfully they go pretty fast.
