Every day I learn something about myself.
I now know that I can not count. Which might explain the financial issues, now that I think of it…
Case in point: Knitting baby booties requires counting stitches. For these booties, it requires counting up to as high as 46.
Apparently I cannot do this reliably.
Ribbit ribbit! Lots of frogging. Poor yarn.
But the first bootie is finished except for the back seam.
I promise to post the link to the actual pattern, and the name of the yarn, and everything, later. I’m using size 3 circular bamboo needles.
For this pattern, one knits flat:
See that lovely striping? See the lovely line of shaping?
Then one gathers the stitches at the toe, and seams up the front and back:
Oh the cuteness!
I have been carrying this bootie around with me and whipping it out to show people at random times. That’s right:
I’m a bootie flasher.
There probably is no cure, but with help I can still be a contributing member of society.
