Occasionally, I finish things. And post more than once a month!

Winter Wheat mitts in Fibre Company Road to China. Beautiful, amazing, soft yarn. 20 bucks for 70 yards, and dammit, I made 'em last. This yarn told me what it wanted to be, so I did its bidding.

Also pretty (&) new: grey trenchcoat from Martin & Osa. Love love love love. Plus, they gave me a student discount. Win!

And last but not least, a pair of shoes that came into my life not too long ago:

Noo brown shoes, hyacinth socks (cookie a summer sox in Araucania Ranco)

This last weekend I went to the first swing dance of the year. I got to catch up with some friends, do a little dancing, and generally socialize with the first years. (They are so cute. Seriously.) But the best part? Somebody came over, plunked these shoes down in front of me, and said, "Here. If these fit, take them." They were a men's size 8: too big for many women, too small for many men. I'm like freakin' Goldilocks, because they fit me juuuuust right. Can't argue with fabulous and free.

Those shoes rock! Where did you get them?

Thanks! The guy didn't say where he had gotten them, but I would suspect they are either thrifted or from a dance or swing shoe supplier.
