We still wear the same shoe size, so it was easy to make them the right size. She had asked for red with navy soles. I teased and said, "Your great-grandson would tell you those are Spiderman colors."
I like using non-skid mat material on the soles to make them non-slip and to extend the life of the sole, but non-slip is even more important for Mom while recovering. She loved 'em! She said she felt like she had celebrity status at the rehab hospital; staff, therapists and nurses commented on them. At her request I sent the link to the pattern so she could share it with her nurse who said, "I don't knit, but I'm gonna have my Mom make me some of those!"
