six years later...
It all started because I saw a pattern for race car slippers on Ravelry and I mistakenly posted the photo on Facebook.
The next thing I know, I'm getting a text from D saying, 'when do I get my pair?'
Excited I said, 'Right away!'
Six tortuous years later I finally sewed the last damn tire on.
The first five years were spent buying random red and black yarns only to toss them aside because they weren't right.
D kept telling me 'it's not that hard, all I want on them are four tires and the number 21'
well it is that hard when you have issues with making people happy.
I was so terrified of him not liking them that I kept putting off the making them.
It became a standing joke between us.
Every time I said I was going to knit something for some one he said back
'how about finishing a pair of race car slippers for your husband?'
Well guess what?
I finished them.
He loves them.
They have four tires
They have the number 21 on them
so what if it's crooked?
So what if my hand sewing skills would make a quilter shudder with horror.
Praise God Almighty the damn slippers are done.
I should have celebrated with a drink last night but it was so late when I sewed the last tire on I just went to bed.
We're see ZZTop tonight and Jeff Beck, so my celebratory drink will come there...
I'm never knitting a pair of race car slippers again...
wait, little LOL just asked for a pair... Actually her dad did. I might cave, but I might make them pink since he said LOL wants them in a mens size 11..
