So many shoes and a FO to boot.

First I'll start with the FO. I am just going to link to my Ravelry page for now, since the recipient is a reader and I have yet to mail dear Buster. I love how this sweater came out, so cute. I will post of pic once I send it for those not on ravelry.
And now for the shoes. Unless you are a new reader to my blog, you will undoubtedly know of my love affair with shoes that rivals my fiber obsession. Well my latest endeavor started innocently enough with a search for some brown shoes. I started by buying the pair adorning my foot (if you can find it) at Kohl's. They were the perfect running around shoes, durable, comfy and practical. Well then I realized I need some dressier brown shoes as well so a trip to DSW was in order. And 2 trips and 11 subsequent pairs later, yes not all are brown, my thirst is quenched for a while. I must explain that DSW was having a HUGE clearance sale, and that all 11 pairs purchased there cost me what I normally would pay for a pair or two if not on sale.
In fact the shoes almost cost the same as the 5 skeins of beautiful Touch Me Due. See it nestled here so lovingly amongst the shoes. Soon it will be the vintage velvet scarf from Scarf Style. I have been dying to knit this for myself and thanks to Christmas money it will be embracing my neck with it's velvety goodness in no time.
And a few close ups of some of my favorite pairs.

I can't wait to see your craft room. I envy your shoe collection. You found awesome deals. I only wish I could wear all those kinds of shoes so since I can't I will just enjoy seeing you wear them.
