DIY Faux Zinc Finish

I love the look of Zinc, but the real thing can be rather pricey. Luckily, there's an easy way to achieve the same effect! I chose to do the faux finish on a flower pot but you can apply it to anything from end tables to candlestick holders.

Supplies:
Terra cotta flower pot
Flat black spray paint 
Martha Stewart Metallic craft paint in Titanium
Chip brush

Snow Day Slippers [knitting pattern]

I whipped these slippers up last time it snowed and I was stuck indoors. They only took a few hours to knit and they're so warm! I created this pattern especially for beginners- there's no complicated heel shaping. As long as you can knit, purl and bind off, you can make these!
Pattern
Yarn: Wool Ease Thick & Quick (2 skeins)
Size 10 1/2 US Needles
CO 40 sts.
Knit 15 rows
Bind off 5 sts.
Work k1, p1 ribbing until last 5 sts, k5
Bind off 5 sts.
Cont in k1, p1 ribbing for 20 rows or length to end of foot (I wear a size 8 and my footbed measured 9 1/2 inches) Take the tail end of yarn and thread it through the stitches. Pull tightly to close.

[This is what the slipper looks like when you are finished knitting]
[Fold slipper in half. Sew the back seam]
[Sew the seam on top of the foot and up the ankle]
