These pocket book slippers are for my sister. She starts radiotherapy today for a recurrence of the breast cancer of ten years ago. Five days one week and four the next for the next six weeks. Then some more chemo, hormones and probably a finish up with the new drug herceptin.
Her birthday is soonish and I thought she might like a comforting slipper to wear around either at the hospital or home. Two years ago I made the fluted banister socks for her in 8 ply as house socks. My mother says she wears them often and really likes them.
These are super easy and very quick to make. Some of the 8 ply wool I bought for $2/100gm recently. I think each slipper took about 2 hours and it's an ideal pattern to use while watching TV etc.
