Sorry to have disappeared there for a bit. We have had sickness visiting our house along with H who’s home for spring break. It’s been a full week.
I do have knitting things to show but I think I’ll save those for another day. Today I want to talk about shoes. Everyone I know has issues with shoes or feet. I too have issues but probably not the standard type issue. I have small feet, really small feet. When I was in college I needed flat plain shoes for my job and I had to buy them at Stride Right. Back then I wore a size 2 1/2 DD. I didn’t end up with very cute shoes. Fast forward to now. After pregnancy and aging I am now up to a size 4 shoe and can sometimes get into a medium width if it’s generously sized. Unfortunately I’m still buying my shoes in the kids department. For ages I’ve been searching for cute shoes to wear with my handknit socks. I wanted something Mary Jane like with a rubber sole but not a patent leather upper. Yesterday I found just what I wanted. They aren’t perfect, I really wanted a buckle and not velcro, but they’ll do. Having new shoes makes me want new socks to go with them so I’ll be working on some socks along with the Lily Cardigan.
Speaking of the Lily Cardigan, she has sleeves and more or less fits. I guess being sick isn’t all bad if you get some time to knit. Photos to come.
