My current work in progress:

Seaforth designed by Alice Starmore, knit in British Breeds 5-ply Guernsey Wool on US 3 needles.



Ever have one of those days when you have a serious case of writer’s block? Why do I mention that now? Oh, no reason . . .

Yeah. I got nothing. Well, I do have a sock that is growing — see?


I am just barely into the gusset increases on my second Rivulets sock here.

Okay, it is time to invoke one of WendyKnits’ Rules of Blogging:

When you don’t have any blog fodder, post a picture of shoes!


These are Mephisto shoes. The style is “Kaisy.” They are possibly the most comfy shoes I’ve ever worn. Seriously. With the possible exception of my Mephisto “Leidina” shoes. Love Mephisto shoes!

“I vant to be alone!”

    Mephisto is the name of my beautiful 14-year-old black cat. I found him abandoned in a shoe box on a cold rainy day in August, as a week-old kitten. We had to feed him kitten formula with a syringe and rub his little belly so he would pee and poo. He is my alpha male cat, and we love him dearly.

  5. I love the Memphisitos too. it’s flip flop time now so it’s all about the Teva Mush flip flop. Do you call them Flip Flops or Thongs?

    great shoes!

    I’ll check them out- always on the lookout for comfy shoes. My favorites right now are SAS Viva. Slightly clunky looking, but easy on the feet.

  7. Darling shoes, darling kitty, darling sock! ‘Nuff said ! Luv.m. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Ohh I love secrets ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Oh boy – it’s off to Zappo’s I must go – I need something other than my clunky SAS “sort of” slip ons.

    Is Lucy channeling Greta or is that her middle name? ๐Ÿ˜›

    Mephistos rock! I am all about comfortable shoes! And like your Mephistos, sometimes you get a bonus and they look good too.

  15. Oooh, I hope the secret is how Lucy always manages to look so purr-fectly purr-ty.

  16. Ah, Zappos, the only place to go when you’ve got size 9 1/2 Wide feet like mine. I shall have to check and see if Mephistos shoes come in sufficient acreage to cover my feet.

    Lucy ignores us… but she’ll be back when the can opener comes out…

  28. I never heard of Mephisto shoes… and I am late getting here so it’s tomorrow already I want to hear the secret, lol

    Aunt Kathys last blog post..Wednesday- Was that a Walk-a-bout?

  29. The Mephistos look quite comfy. Lately my feet have been needing comfort for some reason. I don’t know how to explain it exactly, but they don’t like being bare naked any longer. I have gone barefoot so much of my life, ever since I was a little kid, that I don’t quite know what to do with this new foot sensation I am having. Needless to say, when my eyes saw your Mephisto photo, my feet jumped up and said, “Yeah, something like that!”.

    I have to run now, because my feet are getting just a little bit out of control …

  30. Lack of blog fodder has never prevented me from posting, though I can’t say that I’ve ever shown off a pretty pair of shoes. I have my almost a uniform black shoes that I usually wear with a pair of hand knit socks. I bought them because the back was open and would show them off better, though admittedly I did need a new pair of black shoes at the time. I had worn the other ones pretty much straight through.

  31. Comfy shoes/ Try FinnComfort. They are German-made and I haven’t found anything better. Here in Minnesota, you can get them at Nordstrom.

  32. There’s nothing like a comfy pair of shoes to put a smile on my face- especially since I wear a double wide width! Bless Reyers Shoe Store
