Armor All is Good Stuff

We are preparing to go on vacation next week. My husband changed the oil in my car. I vacuumed and cleaned the inside of the car. I wanted to use Armor All on the inside of my car to clean it up a bit more. My husband told me that he had some Armor All in the garage. After a bit of hunting around in the garage he found the Armor All. The bottle says that it Protects & Beautifies. I want the inside of my car Beautified. So I use the Armor All, and it does the trick! We bought this Armor All in 1988 from Lewis Drugs for $1.29. It is Good Stuff!!

Options Slippers

I think that this has become my very favorite slipper pattern. It is easy to knit, the slippers are warm, and they fit like a glove. I knit these slippers with two strands of yarn held together, I used Red Heart Super Saver in the colors Real Teal, and Pumpkin. The pattern for these slippers can be found here
I am for sure going to knit more of these slippers!!!
