New Shoes!

I snagged a great deal on some shoes the other day:

These are Re-Mixed shoes in the Deco style. Olive and Brown colors. It’s a 1920’s inspired vintage recreation. These are normally $200 and I got them for $65 at Amazon. Great deal, huh? I normally wouldn’t spend even that much on shoes (I’m a bargain buyer), but I fell in love with these and had to have them, and the price break was too good to pass up! They are very comfortable, and the heels make a very satisfying click when I walk in them. 🙂

With all the vintage style clothing in fashion this winter, I think they will fit in quite nicely. And I think vintage is really a timeless style, so I should get lots of wear out of them, at least that’s my story!

I’ve found a couple other pairs of shoes that I’m dying to get, but they are all a little bit pricier, (and not on sale!) and I can’t bring myself to buy them (yet!). I never really was a shoe hog, but I can totally see how people can become one!

On the spinning front, I finished a batch of laceweight the other day:

This is Gale’s Art BFL Roving in the Stormy Sea colorway. I ended up with a little over 600 yards. I’m planning on using it to make a Swallowtail shawl.

As soon as I finish up some Christmas gifts, I’ll cast on for it. I’m chomping at the bit to do a Swallowtail!

And, on the knitting front, I’ve gotten a bit done since last post:

Socks:

And some longies and a smoke ring/wimple:

The smoke ring was knit in some Blue Sky Alpaca Silk – and it only took a few days to knit – it was quite surprisingly a fast knit! I love wearing it instead of a scarf – it’s very soft and warm, yet lightweight.

I’m in the middle of knitting more socks, and several Christmas gifts. If only I had more time!!!

Oh well, both boys are sick with colds, so I’d best go tend to them. 🙂
