Happy Feet!

My slippers are done, and my toes are very happy!! Perfect dressing to wear in a yarn store!

I added 1" in length, thinking my long feet needed it. Wrong!! The pattern, Lorna's Laces Fulled Slipper, as it was written would have been perfect. As it was I ended up needing to open a 2nd hank of Glory and they are truly an inch too long. So even if my feet were even longer, I think the pattern is dead on! I did find 3 corrections to the pattern. Lorna's Laces is making those changes and sending me all new patterns to replace the patterns I currently have. If you understand stocks, the errors aren't bad. But it is a good pattern for a beginner, so I requested these changes. If you already have the pattern, I can send you those notes. If you've ordered the pattern from me, you will be getting a replacement.

In the store today, I am working alone on shipping. After all the shipping is out I'm spending the afternoon with my nieces in Coos Bay. After raising 6 children, who return each summer to keep us young, it gets really quiet over the winter. Not that it is winter, but all summer activities are over and the young ones are back into their school schedule.

Well, talk to you soon! duty calls!
