Twinkletoes & Knitty Gritty

Pattern: Twinkletoes from Knitty
Yarn: Rowan Calmer #484 Lucky

As I mentioned in a previous post, my daughters REALLY wanted these for Christmas. They were so disappointed when I told them the two pairs I made were for the shop **wink, wink**. I loved this quick knit because A) it was for my daughters, B) Calmer is one of my all time favorite yarns, and C) each slipper only took one evening to make. I have a real soft spot for quick knits.

Next, I want to give a shout out to all of my "blog friends" who will be appearing on the TV show Knitty Gritty soon. I'm SOOOOO jealous! I want my name up in lights too!

I've also heard that the Yarn Harlot and Amy Singer, the editor of Knitty, have done episodes as well. I'm DEFINITELY leaving Knitty Gritty on my TIVO list!

Merry Christmas y'all!

Those are beautiful! I love the color.

Thanks for the shout-out :). I think I am going to watch my episode with my eyes closed and earplugs in so I don't hear my silly answers.hehehehe

Very cute twinkle toes!

And another of your friends has had something to do with Knitty Gritty. Drew showed up on someone's post about their taping. I'm thinking it was Isela, but I'n not sure.

Twinkletoes are so cute! I love the colour you used as well! Don't think we get knitty gritty up here. It's a shame cause I really would like to see it.

Very cute! I know you girls will love them.

And what your mother says is true--Drew taped an episode of KG with Annie Modesitt showing some designs from their new book.

SUCH a genius pattern! I'm sure yours will get lots of us. How nice that you decided not to keep them for the shop after all (wink wink)!

Thanks for the shout out for Kaity - we actually got to meet Amy Singer and sit in on her taping! Fun stuff.

(PS, apparently, HGTV is also picking up Knitty Gritty for those who do not get DIY network)
