well, i woke up at six o'clock this morning, so i though, what better time to start knitting those slippers i mentioned earlier? i've done all the heel shaping, with progressive consternation, and finally when i shoved the half-finished product on my foot, i realised my fears were justified: the thing is huge. hmm. the plain janes slipper pattern didn't mention a size at all, but since i have gigantor-style feet (size 10 - 9 1/2 if i'm lucky) i was initially worried that they'd be too small. but i figured oh well, knitting is stretchy, right? i even had the tension down exactly. maybe it's because i decided to make them all in stockinette instead of garter. oh well, i guess it's itme for me to make up another pattern.
