Who needs Uggs?
I am working on an upcycling project today. I bought a pair of closed toe pumps at Hospice Thrift Store for $1.99, actually bought 2 pair but the other ones I'm wearing as is, and I am proceeding to turn them into cute boots by knitting the uppers. Saw this tutorial awhile back and am having a go at it. The pair I bought had fabric uppers so I did not have to drill through the leather. They are turning out pretty good so far. The first few rows were tough, knitting around the hard surface of the shoe but it is pretty smooth sailing now. Going to end it with a ribbed top.
