We’ll get to knitting in a minute, but I have to say I love my new boots. They are Colombia, as you can see and they are quilted all the way to the toe. They have passed the not one blister test, the snow shoeing test, and the walking to the mailbox text.
Are they as cute as some others I tried on? Not even close. There are some adorable faux fur lined boots that were , lets say three times the price. If there is one thing I’m too frugal about it is shoes and boots. I think this comes from growing up in a big big household where you had one pair and wore them out. Now to the important part Knitting. Fezzik did the photo shoot in November and his check arrived mid December. He got paid 300 dollars for the shoot. We thanked him and then decided to split the windfall 4 ways between the family. Fireman and Zach were hinting hard at a ping pong table. They got one and played their hearts out over the visit. ( I movied them in slow motion on zachs phone playing and it is rather hysterical to watch. )
Al and I wanted yarn! Al wanted something with cashmere in it. I chose this gorgeous blend for her at Needles N Pins my new yarn shop. She got two skeins of it. When it marinates for long enough, she’ll let us know and show us her knit. She’s thinking gorgeous shawl.
I chose some sock yarn that I used up already for Uncle Billy. By the way I haven’t heard from him yet. Geez those socks had better not gotten lost in the mail! The socks were Online .
That’s all from Compassionknit here today. I’m shawl knitting with my new Christmas yarn from Fireman. Only had to restart once. My momma heart is feeling better today. I think what threw me so hard was they were BOTH home together and both left. This made the mother heart hole twice as big. But, you all have been so sweet about it.
Ive got to get some healthy food in this house today. Then I’m sitting and I’m knitting. Because it helps my momma heart to knit!
