It’s been rough lately

But it’s okay, because when I look down, this is what I see:

And another view, more realistically from my perspective:

Thank you, Jennie! You are truly an awesome friend.

I wore these on a ~1.5 mile walk yesterday and the left one feels fantastic. The right one is a little too small (like, one millimeter too small), so it’s rubbing my heel, but as I wear it more I can feel that start to improve. It was better than getting the size 40, which were gargantuan. I’ve worn them to work three days in a row, and will wear them every day until they’re completely comfortable (aside from those days when I have to interact with clients; something tells me they would not be well-received).

And, at long last:

I’ve made it to the next color on the second piece of the Super-Secret Project #2. It’s going fast but I’ve been diverted as of late, so I’ll probably get round to finishing it this weekend (which is good, since it must be gifted next week).

And as an added bonus, I’m sending this in to the Skull-A-Day guy:

Can you see the skull? I took off the other boot to see if perhaps this was a clever feature intentionally added to all New Rock boots, but it appears to be purely coincidental. It’s neat.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

    It will indeed be hot, but I’m counting on that (the sweat should help the leather stretch). The right one is still a little short, but I’m holding out hope for its continued improvement. I am kind of stuck with them at this point, anyway!

    Those are some seriously bad ass boots… I’m glad you got them to fit! Its nice to hear that they are comfortable as well.. though I imagine they’re going to be hot if you wear them this summer.
