Knitted Slippers

I may have already told you about the knitted slippers that our family has been making for over 50 years.  Just in case I haven't, my grandmother must have started making them, then my mother, then me and my sisters.  I wear them every day in the house and usually wear out a pair over the year.  I noticed that the pair I was wearing had just about worn out, so I knitted myself another pair in lime green.  My favorite color!

When I pulled out the knitting bag, I found out that I had made a pair of extra soles for the old pair.  So, I was able to repair them too.  Now I have a new pair, and an old pair!  I think it was a great idea to have the spare set of soles.  Before I put the bag away, I'll knit a spare set of soles for my new pair too!  

I hope you have a pattern for something that was passed down in your family too.  Maybe it's not a sewing or knitting pattern... perhaps it's a family recipe.  Anyway, working on the slippers makes me think of Mom, and that's a good thing.
