Inspiration…..funny how it works…..A few weeks ago I was looking through some old pictures and came across my son’s Christening photos. I noticed the shoes he was wearing. They were white satin with ties and they looked so adorable…simple, elegant and adorable. In that moment, Twinkle Toes were born!
Remember Buster Brown Shoes? They were so cool in two colors and I think Twinkle Toes are pretty cool in the two tone too!
Some crochet pattern designs come easier than others, these took me a few tries to get “right” as I had a specific look in mind and didn’t like the result I was getting in worsted weight. I kept trying various weights until I landed on Patons Grace, a sport weight mercerized cotton, which I think shows off the details nicely and has a pleasing sheen too.
Funny how my original inspiration was white satin and I ended up with every color under the sun but white, isn’t it?
I can’t wait to see your finished projects,
so feel free to share them on my Facebook page!
