Anybody Know a Three-Legged Baby?
Using the yarn I got in the Cavalier swap, I knitted a pair of Saartje's Booties. When I was done, I realized one was about half an inch bigger than the other.
My gauge had relaxed. I had to knit a third.
Then, in an attempt to avoid spare-bootie syndrome, I tried to knit a fourth by going down one needle size. Not surprisingly, it was smaller.
I finally just gifted the two booties, kept my mouth shut, and refrained from making any three-legged baby jokes to the mom-to-be.
I'm only telling you.
