Ahhh the love of fiber friends....


I was blessed today! See the shoes? I am a shoe fiend, and when my dear friend Jane showed these beauties at LaGuilde I was in love. But, sigh not within the budget. "Hey if you see those go on sale, let me know." I said, hoping beyond hope they might come within my price range. "What size do you wear?" Jane asked. (I wear a size 8 and Jane had two size 8s)
"You can have them." she said.....
ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? I protested, that was just too generous. We started talking about something else and I intentionally forgot to try on the shoes. But, not Jane......
"Go try those shoes on" she said. My resistance was low (did I tell you how I love shoes?) and I tried them on. They fit!! I adore them! I am going to embroider them when I find the perfect pattern. Jane claims they are payment because I am driving her to Knit Michigan for her book signing. (Jane is legally blind.) I know better she is just that way, too generous for her own good.

But gee whiz do I love those shoes!

On a crafty note, tomorrow is a dyeing day!

In the picture you see silk hankies, superwash sock yarn (for hxckari), merino roving and some yummy alpaca blend yarn.

The shoes are awesome and look comfy. Can't wait to see what you do with the beautiful yarn.
