It never, ever would have occurred to me. I had to go and look at the pictures again. Where I see soldiers in ACUs, several of you see bare feet. No, not even remotely a possibility. And the colour is just wrong for barefeet, especially given the racial diversity of the US Military.
This is what they are wearing –
Mine are old – dating from 2003 and showing a bit of wear. Since they are suede side out – no polish is required. After years of [not] polishing my black boots, you can not imagine how I feel about the improvement.
The mouse traps were empty this morning. The 18 year old managed to take out some trash, but had five hours of child care commitments. Says a lot when toddler diapers are more attractive than room cleaning to music of your choice.
Progress! – gussets are done, and the pattern is progressing nicely down the foot. After doing a few rows on one sock, then the other, I am back to knitting in the same row on each sock. I just don’t want them to be too different. I am actually close to 10 cm down the foot, so it should only be a day or so till I am done!
No knitting progress todate – but I started a Kauni group on Ravelry. Perhaps a chance to get some ideas about what comes after the cardigan.
Who got left behind, not able to come to the block party – much less bark at the puppet theater.
