Slipper Socks for Mom

Last year when I visited Mom, she borrowed my slipper socks and liked them so much she asked for a pair for Christmas. This month she fell and broke her hip and is now in the rehab hospital, so I decided Christmas could come early for her.

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!"
