Okay, so first off, expect to see these boots about a million more times this fall and winter. I had been on the hunt for a pair of cute but also affordable boots for… years… Those things are about as rare as an eleven-year-old without an iphone (i.e. REALLY rare… sadly). I must say that my husband was getting sick of me picking up every pair off boots in each store we went to, and then pouting about the price tag. I even came close to buying a pair of size 10 boots (I wear an 8 1/2) because they were cheap, cute, and I thought maybe nobody would notice they were HUGE… Oh the things we try to tell ourselves when we really want a clothing item… Then I found these beauties at Ross for $25! Yup, they were mine RIGHT AWAY! I think my husband may have been even more happy than myself that the boot search was over.
Secondly, this is my very first DIY cowl. I loomed it rather than knitting it, and for some reason I feel like that is cheating these days. Oh well, all I know is that, while I love knitting, looming this took me MAYBE 40 minutes, while knitting one would have taken me weeks. And, now that I know I can make one that fast, I am going to be making LOTS more. I’m thinking my next ones will be a little chunkier. I really want to make some in oatmeal, chocolate, raspberry, and mustard. That sounds like a recipe for some delicious cowls… but I’m pretty sure it would be a HORRIBLE combination for a sandwich… YUCK!

P.S. Like these boots? Me too! In fact, I like them sooo much that I took them on a trip around the world after getting them. I’m serious! They’ve gone from the little park by my house, all the way to Paris, Switzerland, Germany, back to that park, and then home again to our very own front yard. What can I say? Boots are made for walking, and these ones are so cute and comfortable, I decided to walk all over the world in them 🙂
