Long time readers of RoseRed’s blog will know that for a long time she ran a series of posts on Tuesday each week and called it Shoesday. She wrote no fewer than 75 posts about her shoes. Seventy-five! Eventually she ran out of shoes to blog, got pregnant and presumably didn’t buy as many fancy-pants shoes anymore.
I don’t buy many shoes either and never have much in the way of that to contribute (which is not to say I don’t love shoes; I’m just not an addict).
As I can’t really show you any knitting either (because it’s all dull to look at or Secret Squirrel stuff) I have to find other things to blog about.
So I bring you someone else’s shoes. They are lovely. Adorable. And tiny. I took Alice out shopping at lunch time today for a proper shoe fitting and bought her a pair of red shoes. Who doesn’t love red shoes? Especially teen-tiny red shoes!
She was so good. She sat, looking on with what I like to think was wonderment, at the nice lady who fitted her and informed all present that Alice has very broad feet. Well, Fee and I concluded, she’s one of us. Welcome to the world of broad feet. Turns out her dad has broad AND flat feet. She was doomed, really.
She’s such a confident little walker now. She ran around the cafe in her new shoes with glee. And then she rode the escalator with her dad.
Beautiful girl. Every girl needs to put on a new pair of shoes and go out, even if it’s just to ride the escalator.
I want to knit her some socks but I see her so often rip off the socks she wears. Is she too young to bother with knitting her socks? If I make longer socks will it be harder for her to rip them off? I’ve made them for my nephew, Will, but he’s older and seems to like wearing them. Is 14 months, with an inclination to tearing all footwear off unless it’s tied on, just too young? I’d be interested in thoughts and ideas.
