Convenience Wins Again

My felted slippers have holes in the bottom. They lasted about a year or so. I am not really fond of knitting on size 13 needles so I decided that this time I wasn't going to knit a new pair. I probably wouldn't have gotten them done before the hole wore all the way through anyway.

When I went grocery shopping today, I picked out these. Actually the kids picked them out. They are soft and squishy so they will do for a while and they have rubber bottoms so they might last a little longer too. I like the knitted ones, I just wasn't in the mood to knit any right now.

I got that stinker sock frogged and started again. I am starting the third repeat so hopefully they will be done soon.

I am really trying to make an effort to have the kids do small chores around the house. Punkinbug really enjoys helping with the laundry. Punkin likes to help with dishes and cooking supper. Buddy is good at picking up sometimes. I asked Punkinbug to help with a basket of laundry and her little brother wanted to help. They were so cute, I had to take a picture and share it. Wish all movers were this cute and happy to help.

Cute slippers! I love how the kids are starting to help. Hope the second sock works better this time.

Happy New Year!

Don't you hate it when holes happen?! You could get some of those shoe bottoms for felted slippers and save the top part :)

10 years from now the kids will still be cutie pies - but won't be so happy to help with the chores!

Great idea with the kids. They are so cute btw. I have similar holey slippers - and I doubt that I will knit myself any either. Actually I loaned the pattern out, and I don't think it was ever returned. I never seem to learn that lesson!
