6. Who is/are your knitting hero(es), and why? On a cold and gray Chicago morn
a poor little girl with some sticks was born… OH. I had to go way back on the timeline for a minute and think about this but I think I can finger two significant turning points in my knitting. The first: learning How to Mattress stitch and finding out how much I loved it! I blame Janet Szabo and a little book she wrote called “I Hate to Finish Sweater’s Guide to Finishing Sweaters.” All of a sudden I was Not Afraid.

    Love those boots! They look absolutely comfy and chic-hip-cool at the same time.

    Years ago I had a pair of boots just like that! Ah, the good ol’ days.

    Hee. I think you should get on out there and get some MORE! You’d look GOOD.

    Me too, had a boot similar to these (plainer). They were Frye boots and lasted forever! talk about value. Bet they are nicely worn in and molded to your feet by now.

    Social, definately.


    Something handspund, handpainted, with lots of slubs and variations.

    I have a fascination and love affair with cables too! Can’t get enough of the cabley goodness.

  8. Becky says:

    Those are some serious kicks. I bet you feel you rule the pavement when you walk around in ’em! (I know I would.)

  9. Lolly says:

    I am going pretty crazy for cables too – I have some great cables planned for fall ;)

    Cool boots! I can’t wait to pull mine out for winter wear. Yea!
