mukluks! and miscellany

I think I’m pretty much finished with these…

Not sure what I’ll do about the medusa head fringe. I blathered on about details over at Ravelry (here, for you Ravelers). I plan to get the local shoe repair guy to sew on some leather bottoms (like slippers), just to help with wear and slipperiness.

This (another Ravelry link) has taught me that I can’t always multitask while knitting.

I’m going to Rhinebeck!

With Lucia (and Miss B)!

Since we’re late to the party, we’ll be at the Econo Lodge, which I hear is well within walking distance to Party Central. I was thinking this morning, as I lazed around in bed (until 7), that I should stop at the liquor store on 95 before I leave New Hampshire to pick up some wine.

It is rainy. And gray. And dreary. A perfect day to update my stash spreadsheets… so I know exactly how much I don’t need to buy any yarn in New York!

    I love them! Leave the fringe – I think it’s perfect.
    Have fun at Rhinebeck (jealous that I’m not going).

    I love the slipper/boots!

    I’m insanely jealous that you’re going to Rhinebeck. I am definitely going next year no matter what – I’m tired of living vicariously through everyone else :(

    Have a great time there and don’t feel the least bit bad for us poor souls who have to stay home ;-)

    I was so excited to get your email with the news! I was a single mom this weekend AND working, so not at the computer to speak of, thus no answer yet — but I am SO looking forward to seeing you in person! I’m in Hyde Park so not THAT far away (and will probably take the commuter train up to Poughkeepsie from NYC). (I believe I have never typed Poughkeepsie ever in my life before. It looks a little odd when you’re typing it yourself.) We must make plans as the time approaches.

    I LIKE the mukluks including their fringe. Very cool.

    OMG THOSE! ARE! SO! COOL! The Medusa fringe is a perfect topping. I think these REALLY are fantastic. (And, if I didn’t, I wouldn’t say anything.) But, seriously, these are fab!
