Remember what I said about the temptation to start something new in stage six?

Somehow, as my frustration with my lack of knack for soft shading grew, these little slippers (Ravelry link) found their way onto the knitting needles and were whipped out in a matter of a few evenings.  Of  course, they needed some adornment…and bird tracks in the dust down by the creek, in the shade of the live oaks, provided inspiration.

The tracks do go all the way down the outside of the foot to the heel, but I was unsuccessful in obtaining a decent photograph.  It is no small feat to make decent photographs of one’s own feet.

  1. Love those bird tracks! Very nice, indeed.

    • Thanks, Laurie. They were great fun to stitch. Since then, I have fine-tuned the shaping of the slipper to have it better conform to the curve of the arch, so shall be stitching another set of tracks soon.

  2. Nice, inspired

    • Ta.
      Aren’t we becoming monosyllabic? I miss talking to you.
