“Oh-my-God-keep-me from goin’ lunatic!”

November 27th, 2006

(Boots-boots-boots-boots-movin’ up an’ down again!)

Actually, Kipling not withstanding, it’s been an excellent day for feet!

I got a phone call from my mother. She has a store credit at Wide Shoe Warehouse. She’d buy a pair of shoes, get them home and realize they weren’t quite right, and take them back for credit (the store doesn’t offer refunds). Then she’d get another, slightly more expensive pair and have to take them back too. Long story short, she wound up with a big ol’ stack of receipts offering credit, and a growing frustration at actually finding any shoes there that she’d actually keep. Since I also have wide feet, she snagged me and we went shoe shopping. Normally I hate shoe shopping, but this was actually fun. And I wound up with the little beauty of a low boot at left. Well, I wound up with two of them, but that’s probably implied. Size 8 1/2 WW and they fit like a dream. Thanks, Mom!


As for the socks, I did the gusset and am ready to plow through the foot portion. It’s a good knit when I want to just do a row or two of something different. I’m enjoying it. I’m also a little worried that I’ll have enough yarn to make it to the toe, but I suppose we’ll see, eh?


On the Jayne front, about five more kit orders came in today. People who must have a Jayne by Christmas are bravely knitting their own. Godspeed, brave crafters!

Finally, the weather’s been so good that I’ve spent a fair amount of time outdoors with my daughter lately. Here’s a piece of sidewalk art from yesterday. This is Ava, the Cold Elf. Note the snow, the hat, and also the pointy ears.

Have a great night!

      Hee! What a perfect Futurama icon!

      Yeah, the colors are quite different from what I normally choose, but I saw them and the spirit moved me, so… Spring Socks!

    Wow… isn’t it hard to knit with them on your feet like that…?

    I blame the flounce!
