How’s your Thursday going? I’m working on a crochet art project for a class, triangle granny squares
are involved, while catching up on TV from last night. Also, mmm… coffee. It is the best, amiright?
I’m also a bit on the sleepy side because I stayed up late and then slept in and my internal clock is all cattywampus (it’s an on going issue).
So, yeah, boot cuffs. Have you made a pair or two (perhaps many more) this season? I have. I’m kinda in like with the style, if you ask me. I updated my Michelle collection to include the boot cuffs and I’m working on the Eva boot cuffs pattern (they’re being tested right now.)
The Eva will go up on my website when I hear back from my
testers however, the Michelle boot cuffs are already ready to purchase, if you’re interested, at 40% off their regular $4.50 price, making them $2.70 for the pattern (in fact the whole Michelle collection is 40% off again). 6 different sizes for $2.70. One of my testers sent the cutest photos of her little in the boot cuffs and I’m so glad I added child sizes to the pattern. Originally I was going to do it in only adult sizes, because I don’t have kids and so I don’t usually think about them when I’m working (that’s why you rarely see patterns for children from me) but I got crazy and looked up measurements to see what I could do. 🙂 Like I said, she looked super adorable in her Frozen themed boot cuffs. I’ll update this with a link to my FB when I get the pictures edited and uploaded.
For the Eva cuffs I did something I’ve been wanting to work on for a while, combining yarn and thread in one project and highlighting the qualities of both materials while using them in unison, if that makes sense. I like the juxtaposition of the textures and I feel like this could really add something unique to my future projects. It was one of those ideas I got late at night, while laying in bed, and I happily didn’t forget before I woke up. I’m terrible about keeping a notebook by my bed. I know I’ve laid in bed thinking about ideas for patterns and then fell asleep, only to let the pattern drift away to dreamland. 😦 In fact, this happened this week and I’ve been wracking my brain trying to remember what it was. I fear it’s gone forever.
Anyway, the Eva cuffs will be made available for free on my website when they’re finished (yay!). You can add the Michelle boot cuffs to you Ravelry queue here, which I would appreciate. 😀
Take care and enjoy this first week of November. It’s already getting cold where I live and I’m a little irritated that it feels like we’ve skipped over Fall. It went from still needing the AC in October to browsing the internet for a space heater in November. I’m just glad I have an abundance of blankets. 😀
