Give me a second here…
I am extremely fond of your black slingback wedge heel espadrilles, but have found myself unable to buy them as you seem to have underestimated the demand for these cute little numbers.
I have been to FOUR of your fine stores looking for them, but a pair in size 6 1/2 seems is akin to finding Nessie. Given that it is physically impossible to walk into one of your fine establishments and not purchase $50 worth of previously unneeded merchandise, I calculate that approximately $200 worth of items has been procured in my search. If I indulged in conspiracy theories, I would just begin to be suspicious.

Now onto the sock portion of our program.
My Loksins are going along smoothly, but I did notice that my ball of yarn is rapidly dwindling. (Hey I just got that "loksins" means "finally" in Icelandic.) The yarn is put up in 175 meter skeins, but I’m doing the heel flap thingy heel that Cassie has written, rather than my usual short row heel. I think the heel flap thingie takes up more yarn than the short row version, and I added a repeat to make them a tad longer. I think I’ve got enough yarn and will knit through with confidence. Worse case scenario will have me ripping back to the heel and extra repeat and reknitting with just enough yarn. I like my knitting on with confidence version best. Less work for lazy girls.
