are these too girly?

That's the first thing that came out of my husband's mouth. "Aren't those a bit... girly? I mean, they're knit." O. K. 

I was excited to even have gotten a slipper shape, having just grabbed some of my Nana's yarn & a crochet hook and just went with it. No pattern, no nothing. And each slipper came out the same size as it's mate - another feat. Any knitter or crocheter knows what I mean. The blue pair - Nate's, came first, but I figured the shape out a bit better when doing Mason's. I was happy with them given that these just came out of my hands and brain with no other starting point than the fact that my boys need slippers. I think Nana would like them.

But, my bubble has been effectively burst. Can anyone tell me that a pair of nearly 3 year old boys can wear them (even in front of company) without being embarrassed? Oh - they do get embarrassed, they yell at their dad to stop dancing all the time. It's true.

So, let me know - comment your vote. I can take it, and I'm sure my husband can, too.

Those slippers look very comfy. My vote would be a "yay", especially since you made these from scratch. Good colors. Well, I think if the boys feel embarassed, ask them if they want cold toes.

I think they are urban chic meets L.L. Bean. I could totally see these slippers in the J. Peterman catalog.

Very cute!

I think maybe your Nana made them for the Boys thru you.

I think they're swell - and you could even make them in Red Sox colors!

Love, Mom
