Last week I turned 32 and I celebrated it splurging on the most beautiful shoes ever, the Nesbit Oxford from Samantha Pleet's collection for Wolverine 1000 Mile. I had been lusting over these shoes since I saw the lookbook on Miss Moss back in May, and finally I took the decision to purchase them. I must say I don't regret it, they're gorgeous and super comfy, with the perfect heel height. And the people at Frances May were super helpful finding the perfect size. Now, if only it would cool down a bit around here so I could wear this instead of sandals...

Also, despite being so busy working on the new book, I've managed to finish knitting this cardigan in a cashmere and alpaca blend. Again, I'm longing for fall badly!

And last, a totally gratuituous photo of Maggie in her favorite box, in her signature pose. It cracks me up everytime I see her like this!


  1. Love the shoes!!!
    Maggie is such a little lady - love her pose! :**

    Happy to hear that you had a wonderful birthday!

  2. Maggy looks so human!!! and I can't believe you really have knitted this sweater! amazing

  3. wow! I love Samantha Pleet! amazing shoes!
    and your knitting, oh dear...! <3

  4. Charlyn, don't let her fool you, she's such a brat!! :***

    Ada, thanks so much! It's been many years knitting and practice makes perfect. Do you remember the green wrist warmers I knit for you? :D

    Cristina, I love Samantha Pleet too. I think you would look so awesome in her clothes! PS. And when are you coming to Madrid to knit with me? :**

  5. Me encantaría saber tricotar así de bien... ahora que ha llegado el otoño de golpe y porrazo... te nomino en el "sunshine award" en mi blog! no tienes que seguirlo pero yo te aviso ;)

  6. Ok, we definitely have similar tastes. Those shoes are to die for. I am so jealous...they don't carry the women's in the uk. Hopefully they will.

    GREEN with envy!

  7. ps. I am 'louhie' on ravelry!!!

  8. Isa, muchas gracias por nominarme! No se si encontraré el tiempo de seguirlo, pero tu blog desde luego que lo seguiré. Yo estoy feliz con la llegada del otoño ^_^

    Louhie, they don't carry them in Spain either, I bought them from the US (and had to pay a ridiculous amount on Customs). But I wore them yesterday and they're SO comfortable!! PS. I just added you on Ravelry :)

  9. Of course I remember! I wore them out totally! I was wearing them all the time so I destroyed them totally:( maybe I should have worn them only for special ocations:/
    I'm going to start knitting again this Autumn:)
    I wish You great Autumn, Julia:)

  10. Oh, no, don't worry, they were intended for everyday use! I'm really happy to hear you wore them out, Ada!! Maybe it's time to knit you new ones? :***
