Lavender and Sage Slippers

My Nieces birthday is coming up this weekend and she had asked me to knit her a pair of purple slippers, so I flipped through some pattens and came across these quick knit ones. I doubled up the yarn on the foot to give it more of a chunky look. These should keep her little feet warm and cozy!

My Niece will be turning three! I can't believe how quickly time has gone by. Now that my Niece and Nephew are 3 and 4, I seem to be getting all these requests for different knit projects...slippers, hats, sweaters...and anytime one wants an item so does the other! Not only are they asking for knits but anytime a birthday comes near I start getting hints of what type of character cake they would like me to make. For my son's birthday it was Buzz Lightyear, my Nephew's in December was Spiderman and now for this weekend I think my Niece has decided on a "Princess" cake...but we'll see, she can't seem to decide. So keep a close watch to see what this weekend has to offer, I will be posting some photos of her cake and whatever else I come up with. It seems that once I start baking I just can't stop! Here's to being three, wearing purple slippers, and eating princess cake! I just can't wait!!!


  1. I love these slippers, where did you get the pattern?

  2. Hi Neva, I actually got this off of Raverly. If you search "slippers" they will come up, I think they are from The Daily Knitter. Thanks for reading my blog!

  3. My kids still remember all the cakes I made for them over the years--well worth the time!

  4. It was so well worth it, my little niece must of thanked me a dozen times for it! I think she enjoyed the cake than her presents!!!
