My spouse is taking me to a fancy dress ball this weekend. I bought a new dress, had my nails done and spent days looking for shoes. At this pont ANY shoes. I have 6.5 W size feet. No one carries wide shoes. I usually settle for size 7. The trouble is all the ones I like are too tight in a 6.5 or I walk out of them in a size 7. I hate to spend good money on shoes that are not comfortable to wear. So I have no nice shoes.
Since I had to spend an awful amount of my time shoe shopping I haven't been able to do much knitting. And since I didn't even find shoes what was the point. All that time I could have spent finishing my first sweater of the year. So much for complete one each month.
