Pollyanna versus the Counting of Doom

Lyda here.

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.

Forty-six!

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:

Booty the First

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:

Bootie the First 3-D

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.
