Before the picture loaded I was thinking, "oh but really, how interesting can knitted slippers be." But those are SO CUTE. I think the color combination is part of it, I love that minty green with red and pink. But with the pom-poms! Oh! I want them.

Happy Birthday! My grandma used to knit me slippers but nothing as fancy as your photo...I learned how years ago but haven't done any since. They really are some seriously cute slippers.

Happy Belated Birthday! My great grandma made the same slippers, I discovered this pattern and made them for the whole family last year: http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/maggieslippers.html

Happy Birthday! It was a good weekend for birthdays...mine was yesterday and I share it with my Father. I wish you all the best for the coming year!

Christy

Happy birthday dear Vicki! May your birthday wishes come true!

Suzanne

I forgot to mention, I know your a Tasha Tudor admirer, I attended her memorial service and blogged about it if you care to take a look. I posted a clip from the last video the Japanese did of her and her gardens a couple of years ago.

Well, a happy birthday to you!

I went on the slipper hunt this weekend and found this at my local fabric store . . . http://www.kwiksew.com/Catalog/cat_detail.cfm?pid=3323&QL=CraftsHatsMittensSocks
I plan on trying this sometime this week. Good luck on your slipper quest!

Happy belated Birthday! I am so glag that you were given the "royal treatment", which I know was well deserved. I have always thought that there is nothing like new slippers for your feet to make you feel warm and toasty. I look forward to your sewing and shareing. Can't wait!.... Most of all take the time you need for you.

Fiona

Beautiful colour combination. Just so sad that things this cute don't look so good in grown-up sizes (or on grown-up feet come to that!)

Yin

happy, happy belated birthday!

I am not trying to be pushy, but I have a pair that I knitted in my etsy shop if you'd like to take a look at them. Twyla

Happy Birthday...a little belated perhaps...but better late than never, right?! Glad you day was filled with treats and joy. Those little slipper will make for happy feet... :o)

Lena

May your "new year" bring a wealth of love, happiness and inspiration to you, dear Vicki.

Thank you for posting about this worthy cause.

My grandma always made us kids slippers (with pom poms) and mittens every year for Christmas. Oh the memories you've stirred.
Love yours!

Yep, each night this week, I've had cold, cold feet and felt like getting out my corn baggy to warm up in the microwave! Happy Birthday!
