So here are the photos of my finished Through the Loops Mystery Socks 2010.
Yarn: Araucania Ranco Solid
Needles: 2.5mm magic loop on 100cm circ
Mods: I did the medium size and only decreased the toe down to 28 stitches so it wasn’t as pointy.
I will now be going back to my Fireside Cardigan, it is feeling very neglected and put out by all the socks and monsters that have been knitted recently.
Yesterday I was at the Outlet Village looking for footwear. My toes are currently poking through my trainers and they look tatty, but I also wanted some ankle boot type things to go under trousers mostly for the days I go into the office. After looking unsuccessfully in a couple of shops I slightly reluctantly went into Ecco. Their shoes always seem a bit old lady-ish to me but I was willing to have a look. And having such small feet, beggars can’t be choosers! I tried on some little granny ankle boots in a size 35 and they were soooo comfortable and fit like a glove!! And they didn’t actually look THAT bad on under my jeans. So I bought them!!
Which just left trainers to get. No success there but I did go into a shop called Bootique, which sells a LOT of different Ugg boots. I really don’t like the suede Ugg boots that you see people scuffing around in, they are always out of shape and unflattering. I had a wander around the ladies boots but nothing appealed to me, until I thought of checking the kids section (I only take a size 2.5 after all). I found the coolest ever boots in my size!! You’d never know they were Uggs at all, which I’m happy about. Check these out………….
