I've been sorting through things and found a huge pile of old projects that were not finished including a beautiful Fair Isle and embroidered duplicate stitch sock. I designed and knit this sock for a project I worked on for the Museum of Fine Art's catalog in Boston many years ago.
The yarn is long gone and there was not a chance I would knit a match. I cut it up. First just below the ankle pattern to make 2 pieces.
I cut the toe off and cut along the gusset so there are now 4 pieces.
I cut through the ankle section to flatten it.
With my sewing machine set on zigzag I sewed around the two square pieces. They are now usable for something.
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.
