I Knit A Shoe

February 24, 2006

Lookie, lookie!

That’s one knitted boot, finished during the women’s figure skating finals last night. Perhaps there is some irony in making snarky remarks about figure skating costumes while knitting myself a boot–but if there was I missed it.

I really happy with this first shoe–definitly worth all the silliness of drilling and knitting with a boatload of DPNs. The only problem is those ends hanging out. The pattern said to weave them in sometime around row 9–but I was too caught up in the shoe-knitting to stop and find a needle. Now I need to find my way into the dark inner of the shoe to tie some knots and weave some ends. Yet again I learn that just following the pattern would make my job easier. Sigh.

    you knitted a shoe! It is very nice. I like the green.

    I really hated the costume that was red and black with kind of flames and was supposed to look like she had a lot of skin showing. That is the only really bad costume I remember.

    Oh my god! I love these boots. I was totally following the process as the Blue Blog 😦 http://alison.knitsmiths.us/ ) was making them.

    They are so crazy. I want to know if you really wear them, and if people comment on them.

    I think they are super funky. I enjoy them very much. Did you need to use a drill?

    I like the green with the tan shoe — much better than the original orange on the show!

    I just watched the Knitty Gritty show with these boots and thought I would do some searching on them. You did an amazing job, and I love green too! Id love to see any more that you have knit if possible!
