The baby socks are off the needles, blocked and ready to mail. Of course, the reality of my current life is that getting to the post office might actually present considerably greater challenges than knitting a pair of socks on tiny needles, so there is that hurdle to overcome. But nobody writes blog posts with titles like "Local Post Office Along," so I'll spare you the details.
I started knitting a pair of leg warmers for the girl, but after some number of rows I began to feel that sneaky, sneaky feeling that something was not right. I had her try on the one I was working on, and indeed, it was absolutely enormous. And not in a "Oh, she'll grow into it" kind of a way, either. Frog, frog, frog.
Initially I thought that the problem was on my end, because I did have a very difficult time getting the right gauge before I casted on. But after doing a bit more research into the matter I have happily concluded that the problem is not me after all. The problem, actually, is that the leg warmer pattern was written for giants. I won't tell you which pattern it is specifically, because that doesn't seem very nice, but I keep seeing it pop up all over the interwebs, so I will tell you to be careful out there.
Unless you have giants to knit for. In which case, I have the pattern for you!
Yarning along with the always delightful Ms. Ginny today.
