Taking a break from the Color by Kristin Previews and onto another preview of a Knitty! kind. The lovely Amy and Jillian asked me to be part of their Fall surprise. Here are what I call "mukluks" but what those clever girls have named Macarons. The instructions are up on the new surprise! Check it out here.
When you do projects for Knitty you have to supply your own photos. That is always a challenge to me. First I shot them a bunch of still-lives of the Macaron Mukluks. I sent them on over and although Amy liked them, she wanted legs. Those tree branches didn't quite cut it!
Lucky for me, one of my good friends Shalee brought her legs and feet to the rescue early one day last week before she had to head off to work. Here are the Macaron Mukluks with Shalee's feet and legs in them.
The slipper sock bottoms came from Fibertrends and you can check them out here.
This project is extremely do-able. Quick to knit, fun, and happy. A perfect gift for a friend who lives in a cold climate and a chilly house. The yarn is of course Julia and you can find it at your local yarn store. If not, ask them to carry it!
BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.
This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.
The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.
