My Favorite Slippers Are No More. . .

A couple of years ago (I think it was a couple of years ago – I lose track of time) my dear friend, JoAnn, knitted and felted a pair of slippers for me.  They are so warm and comfy, I wear them all winter long.  They fit my tiny size 5 feet exactly because JoAnn goes through a whole process to match them to the new owner.  I’m not sure about all the ins and outs of the process – that’s JoAnn’s department – but I know that I love them, love them, love them!

And since I work from home, that means I wear them a lot!  During the winter, I put them on when I get out of bed in the morning and keep them on until I go back to bed that night – unless I go outside.  Although, I have at times worn them outside to take out the trash, get the newspaper, check the mail, etc.  Oooops!

That is, I “wore” them a lot up until now.  Since I wear them every day – sometimes all day – during the winter, they have had to endure a great deal of abrasion.  And now I can’t wear them anymore because they are worn out!

This is what they look like on the bottom now when I put them on.

And this is what they look like on the bottom after I walk around in them for a while.

I start tripping over the pieces that stick down from the bottom.  Talk about tripping over your own feet.  What’ll I do?!?!?!??

(Oooops!  Song interlude.)

Now I have to go back to wearing these furry creatures.  (I took these pictures upside down.  Pretty creative, huh?. . . Don’t answer that.)

These have kind of thick soles and they’re a little big.  But at least they’re warm!

JoAnn feels sorry for me.  She’s going to make me some new comfy felted slippers.  Hurray!

    Oh my, I do fancy a pair of Jo-Ann’s myself, wonder if she’s thought of branching out into export?

    Funny, I had the feeling that this was somehow going to lead to twisting JoAnn’s arm!
    Maybe she should put a little more heart and sole into the next set?

  6. Yay! Lucky you! I’m lucky to have an expert knitter for one of my nieces! I’ll show her the photo of your (former) slippers!
