Quite a while ago a friend of mine passed on a really easy pattern for knitted slippers and I have been busy using up lots of odd balls of wool from my pile.
The grandchildren love them and as well as the ones they have at home I've a pile at the door ready for them to use during the winter when their shoes are dirty.
For some reason all the time I've been knitting these I have felt really comfortable and had no strange feelings about doing something that isn't quite the norm at the moment here in Australia.
Now I know why - I found this picture in a bundle that arrived from my sister in England the other day.
I've only copied part of the photo but it shows me at about six and a half just after the war in England and guess what I am wearing?
