Treasures from the past

I found this among some papers and thought you may enjoy it.

Mom's Purse Slippers (this is written in my Mom's hand writing. So the "Mom" referred to would be my Grandma. I don't know where she obtained the original pattern. I have never knit these slippers. I have never followed this pattern. So please proceed cautiously. Though it was handed down from mother to daughter. Both mother and daughter were skilled knitters so I don't think there is much to fear. )
