Das Boot

Well, yesterday when I was going through my ritualistic blog-reading (I'm not a coffee drinker, so sue me), I noticed the interview over at Knit-and-Tonic with Vickie Howell. It was entertaining.

So, today I find Vickie over at the Blue Blog with Alison. Two of my favorite blogs in two days. Coincidence?

As I always do during my ritual, I followed the links and found Vickie's blog. I bonded with her immediately because of her reference to speaking of oneself in third person. I mean, what a COINCIDENCE!!!! I wish I could watch her show, Knitty Gritty, but alas - no DiY for me.

AND, to boot, there was a pattern for a knitted BOOT on a recent episode. Alison had the link on her site and I just have to make these boots. Wasn't I just saying that I needed pink boots?! This life is full of happy coincidences and I must have the boots.

The coincidence sort of breaks down with the color, though, because the boots on the show were actually orange (thank you, Photoshop) and I would never make orange boots. Well, probably never. This stems from having "TIGERS" as my childhood school mascot so every time I wear orange I feel like I should be doing a cheer or something.

    Great boots! But coincidence? I think not! Clearly, it's Mr. Hardy's influence.

    Thanks for hosting the Mrs. B KAL. Loving the pattern, will have progress photos soon.

    The boots are such a snappy idea...Once you make them please post, I would really like to see what they look like on somebody!

    They made these boots on an episode of Knitty Gritty last week. You can access more pics and the pattern at the DIY website.

    Even if you don't get DIY, there are some great Knitty Gritty tutorials online - so you can keep up with the show there!

    I did an interview with Vickie too, if you are interested, you can see it on my blog :)
