Hitting the road

I need to finish getting ready for the trip up to Snohomish to see my sister's family and the stepfamily I was raised with. We'll drive back down later this evening, sleep, get up early again and go over to Judy's for the Hawes family get together. We'll spend the afternoon there and be home again. Saturday afternoon we're scheduled to be down in Salem for my dad's side of the family get together. I have hopes of seeing Cole for the first time, but not holding my breath.

Judy's French Press Slippers were finished in the late hours last night. I left them drying overnight with the black puff paint on the bottom. I think if I do these again I'm going to try to do them with a wider sole. I have wide feet and these don't feel like they fit my foot. Since its not my foot they have to fit, not terribly concerned. I'll take a better picture of them on Judy's feet - with her permission of course!  Until then, here they are:

I hope your holidays are safe and happy! 

ETA: Judy's feet had the same problem with the sides being low as I did with them. Over felting? Not high enough sides? I'm going to next try the House Slippers pattern out of the Knit 2 Together book. I can use up some leftover Cascade 220 and still do some cute stuff to make them special. If you're on Ravelry and still want to do the French Press Felted Slippers, there is a person in there that has adapted the pattern to be picked up, so no seaming.
