1) Back to Italy for my favorite shoemaking class. How’s everyone’s Christmas break?

2) Although Christmas lights have been removed from the streets, the downtown Florence is still lively as usual.

3) The first week at school, I continue working on my ankle boots, which requires crimping on a wooden board.

在學校的第一週,我繼續我去年未完成的踝靴,其中它需要先在木板上做彈移。

4) However, I’ve also learned another way to do on the lining using reinforcement tape instead of crimping.

但在內裡上,我改用補強膠帶而非彈移的方式來結合內外腰兩分片。

5) After 24 hours when the crimped piece gets dry, I am now able to cut it down for my upper stitching.

經過一天的陰乾,我就能把已塑型的分片裁下準備車縫。

9) Yuichi is still productive and efficient on his shoe making. Can’t wait to see his next shoes coming up!

10) The color of Arno river keeps changing everyday depending on the weather. That’s why it is so comforting after a long day work on my way home.

阿諾河的顏色會依天氣每天都有不同,這也是為什麼在終日工作後回家的路上看見它總是特別療鬱。
