I was immediately attracted to the Bellini yarn when we were given a few skeins to play with in the office. The bold texture appealed to me since I love making a statement with my style. I imagined knitting with the cushy fringe between my fingers and knew I had to work with it. As I was pondering what I would make with it, it occurred to me that the Turin colorway looked a lot like fur. What kind of accessory could I make that would be different and would lend itself to the the fur-like texture? Then it hit me – I should make boots!
They were super warm and so much fun to wear! I liked how the thick fringe made the boots look so over-sized and made my little legs look so tiny. I wore them them to a fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and was stopped repeatedly as the fashionistas admired my unique footwear. I believe that you should have fun with fashion and wearing these Bellini boots definitely put a smile on my face!
