I bought these online, used, and immediately felt guilty for spending money that I don’t really have, but they cost me $30 when this brand regularly sells for $100+ new. And the only sign of wear on them is the bit of creasing at the toes. Not to mention, I’ve been wearing the same ratty trainers as my every day shoes for the past, oh, three years. It’s good to have new footwear.
The astute will notice that I am, in fact, wearing my handspun socks. Because, while the short row heel still isn’t my favorite, they do fit, and it’d be a shame to let them go to waste… right?
And since I’ve got such awesome shoes for showing off handknit socks, obviously I need more pairs. So I dug up a sock that I was working on in January and started working on its mate.
The cats are unimpressed, as usual.
But at least they’re not fighting with each other!
