It has been awhile...and what a wonderful Summer we have had! With a handful of Summer festivals this year we have been exceptionally busy. But busy is good and after taking some time to tackle home projects over the last few weeks (posts to come shortly) it is time again to start getting geared up again for our Fall/Winter shows.
Today I am planning at trying my had at making some rustic stockings out of some old Roots Sweaters. I have a few on hand that I have been hanging onto trying to decide how to put them to use and with Christmas just around the corner (yep, I said it...) I think that Stockings would be a great idea!
I know, why not just knit a few rather than cut and sew...but I am a huge fan of upcycling and these fabulous sweaters are screaming to be made into something functional. With their cozy warm and chunky design I can already visualize them hanging over a cottage fireplace with the fire popping and crackling.
Wish me luck!
