Used sock yarn held double- a dark green striping yarn and black sparkle. I seamed with a furry novelty yarn. I don't know why I didn't think of doing this before but I love the final effect. And the slippers are still machine wash/dry.
TGIF. Will be heading down to Hmart tomorrow for my quarterly supply run of Korean groceries and alcohol. The rest of my waking hours will be devoted to knit, knit, knitting up gifts. And I think I'll try to get a tree on Sunday; time to deck the halls.
