Well, in spite of the rain and gloom yesterday I was able to take some photos.
Here is a shot of Izzy with my new shoes. The shoes are part of a sad story. I’ve been limping around on a bone spur for the past six months and as a result have stretched and inflamed ligaments in my right foot. I finally broke down and went to the doc the other day. He said no going barefoot at all and I have to wear these orthopedic inserts in my shoes, like for the rest of the year.
Okay, I live to go barefoot. As soon as I get home from work, the footwear comes off. That’s bad enough. But the other problem is my cowboy boots. If I have to wear shoes, I wear cowboy boots. I have over 100 pairs of ‘em. Hot pink lizard? I got ‘em. Turquoise snakeskin? I got ‘em.
Well, my foot is swollen and with the added bulk of the heel insert . . . I . . . can’t . . . wear . . . my . . . boots.
So I went out yesterday and bought two pairs of shoes a half size larger than normal. You’re looking at the brown ones. I also got ‘em in black.
But today I’m wearing New Balance walking shoes. It is, after all, Friday.
End of sad foot story.
I finished Dave’s Socks!!!!
And I started my Dad’s socks:
These are also Regia 6, same as Dave’s.
And I did manage a Valtos pic, here. I’ve finished the armhole decreases and am working my way up to the neck.
So that’s the knitting update.
The latest sniper attack was in Manassas, Virginia. Real close to where my brother lives. Who knows where next? I’m now afraid to go to a gas station.
