Experimenting with heels January 30, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — ronikins @ 1:32 pm

So in order to distract myself from making a decision* (I suck at making decisions) I created a problem that needed solving (I love to solve problems). Neurotic? Maybe, but at least I am aware of my sickness.

Problem: Need for a better short row heel (I was using the wrap method)

Possible Solutions: Laura B’s Toes and Heels

Experiments conducted:


Verdict: Japanese short row heels ROCK! They are not only the easiest (which also means quickest) but I think they give the best results.

Sorry for flash photos, but it’s raining again.

Look at that heel!

So how do the kiddos feel about being trapped inside on a rainy day with a crazy mom who insists on clearing off their train table** to sit on top of it and take pictures of a sock?

The jury is still out on this one….

**it’s really a large wooden coffee table with drawers, buts substitues nicely for a train table (or whatever else they are playing with in the playroom)

    It’s easy and there is no wrapping, although those japanese ones look pretty fancy, I may have to give those a try!
