The buttons on the slippers are so adorable. I'm sure your sister will love everything.

Thanks, guys.  The buttons are hand-painted and they gave just the right touch to the slippers.

Very nice work.  I like the slippers.  They look like they would stay on your feet real well.  The button is really a nice addition.  Also love that scarf.  Very pretty.

I love the scarf! It's beautiful Smiley

I just gave my friend her Christmas present last week, so you're not the only one who was behind! Cheesy

Thanks for the compliments, frix220 and Shirley Ujest!  I got the pattern from Yarn Hag's post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=134836.0
She did a really good job breaking down the cables, which was really helpful for me, a first-time cabler!

Wow. Are you sure that's your first cable project? Because I know mine wasn't that pretty, and had a LOT of mistakes, but yours is so pretty!
