A bunch of you commented on the boot photo in yesterday’s post. These babies are currently the only pair of cowboy boots I own — I gave away my collection a few years ago. These are Lucchese boots, handmade, from the Classics Collection.
I bought them online from Zappos (love Zappos!) on sale at a very deep discount. The retail price of these suckers makes me feel faint so the sale was a happy thing. But these are hands down the most awesome boots I have ever shoved my dainty feet into. So very very comfortable.
Last night Stacy (Stacy, her sister Muriel, and L-B and I were the attendees at the cabins-in-the-mountains weekend) emailed me what is my favorite photo from this past weekend:
That’s L-B and me walking the road up to our cabin. (See? L-B does exist.)
I did actually get some knitting done over the weekend. I finished the front of my Not-Really-Hawthorn sweater:
I made the neckline deeper and narrower than the pattern directs.
And I started a sleeve:
I decided for the sleeves I’m going to twist all the cables towards the front of the sweater. So on the other sleeve, the cable twists will be going in the opposite direction.
I’ve done little work on it since I got home because I’ve been insanely busy and consequently insanely tired. I knit 2 rows last night. Whee. Hopefully things will quiet down a bit and I can get back to what passes for normal around here!
