Today I give you little itty bitty baby shoes/booties/slippers, whatever...
Pattern: Magic Slippers
Yarn: Remember those unisexual colored Koigu mill ends I bought for Moochie's Tulips Baby Sweater? Well I let one girly mill end slip into my haul. This is it!
Needles: US 2
Notes: Now I'm not sure why the one slipper has kind of a boxy looking toe. But no worries. These will probably fit Baby Bez 3.0 for approximately 3 seconds. If even.
Just like the booties I have saved from the boys. Those booties now hang in my rearview mirror.
Chunky's pair were a late gift from a friend (knitted, but not handmade--or if they are by some nameless Asian person in a sweatshop overseas), and because they were late, they never fit Chunky.
Moochie's pair are a pair gifted from a real knitter that fit him for approximately 2 seconds.
Which is why I knit these pretty much with my mirror in mind.
One of the frighting things I learned at my 19 week ultrasound is that this girl has huge feet. Like 3 centimeters (and that was 2 weeks ago) long. Doesn't seem like much, but her femur measured 2.9 cms. Good lord.
How is it that Dr. Mad Scientist and I are breeding these freakishly tall or large featured children??
