We're now into day two of unrelenting grey skies which means I can't show you the hat I made with the latest Twisted Fiber Art club yarn, or the second weaving project, or anything else yarny I forgot to take pictures of on a sunny day. So instead, I am going to tell you about warm legs.
After running out to see Bob the other morning I came home to find a present in the mailbox, and since I was hepped up on decaf coffee by then I took pictures right away:
The little present unfolds into this:
It's a pair of organic wool legwarmers I bought from Woolen Moss at Etsy. I must say I like the seam that runs down the length of them the best - gives me some choice about where I want that vertical line to go.
Finding the legwarmers in the mailbox reminded me of the boots I'd impulse purchased that morning, which - let's be frank - laugh at the legwarmers as only spaceboots can:
These things really do look awful don't they. Cute soles though!
If only the soles showed from the front.
On the upside:
they are warm
they are waterproof
they weigh practically nothing
they won't show salt stains like every other boot I own
my orthotic insoles fit inside
so do my superthick handknit wool/mohair socks
and I live in Canada and winter is coming.
they don't look too too horrible when you pair them with a pair of slouchy merino legwarmers.
And that's me for today. Have a wonderful day even if it doesn't have weird looking moonboots in it!
