Over five years after printing out the pattern for these crocheted cowboy boots, I have finally made a pair. In my defence, I didn't know how to crochet when I originally found the pattern. I made these bad boys while we were away in France, sewing in the ends etc. once we got home. One boot is a bit misshapen and wonky (I kept getting distracted when I should have been counting stitches!) but I am living with it. For now.
I'm glad Dulcie the shoe refuser is willingly wearing them as I was starting to feel bad taking her out in cold weather wearing just her socks. You can probably tell from this picture that Dulcie (and I) came home from France with a horrible cold.
She's really feeling rotten, but put on a brave face while modelling her boots for the camera, bless her.
And here she is genuinely happy because I was letting her play with the remote control for the TV. Isn't her jacket lovely? My mum bought it for her (at a second hand baby sale in France) before she was even born and she has finally grown into it at just the right time of year. This jacket used to look so huge to me!
