Flatfooting (knitting to come)

Once upon a time, Laura asked if I could post some flatfooting footage up here, so y'all would know what I was talking about with these competitions, etc. I have no footage from competitions this summer, but I did have my friend Mindy video a performance I was in at the Clear Creek Festival in Berea, KY this summer. My friend Julie and I have a flatfooting duo we call the Linefork Girls. We teach flatfooting and clogging workshops, do demonstrations, give lectures, etc. We are also part of a group we call Hell or Highwater, which is the ensemble that performed in this video. It's not the greatest performance -- we all mess up a few times, and my friend Carla couldn't find her shoes... but you get the idea. If you're not interested in my non-knitting life -- I apologize. I've been knitting, but haven't been posting much about it recently. I'm hoping for an FO soon, though so...

(p.s. I'm the one in the red skirt and pink top. I love that red skirt... it's from Anthropologie, a few seasons ago -- a birthday gift from my mom).

How fun! Was the guy in your group playing spoons as well? That footage really put a smile on my face, especially the little girl jumping to the music!

Thanks so much for sharing this, Jennie!

That was really cool! I, too, loved the little girl in front that was trying to figure out how the heck you were doing what you were doing! :) Thanks for sharing!
