I'd already bought a few skirts in 2017 after getting the boots, however I fell in Princes St when running wearing the boots, accompanying my son on buses to ERI for his lung op, cracked my ribs, eventually going to A&E to get it checked out, because it got worse before it got better! Didn't know this, hadn't cracked ribs before. Cracked and broke many other bones over the years since childhood, being an active child and person. Liking a risk.
Here are the socks I've knitted, now wearing in boots:
|First pair of socks knitted, Tiffany diamond pattern, 16Apr16|
|Alpine sock, 29Jan17|
|Jacobs 4ply pure wool 14Mar17|
|Austermann Step 4ply German wool zigzag pattern socks, 9Jun17|
|2nd pair of Austermann Step socks, 8Aug17|
Here are some recent tweets of layered outfits before setting out for the 94 bus from Springfield rail station to Leuchars rail station for the 99 to Dundee and swimming lengths in the training pool at the Olympia, Dundee:
