It's done! The little man's little outfit is done.
I had a little mishap with the booties. The pattern I used called for US 5 needles and DK weight yarn. Well, I don't have 5s, and I don't have 4s in DPNs, so I figured I would do them on 6. And this yarn is worsted weight.
That idea right there proves that sanity is not achieved while pregnant.
So I worked the "little" booties on size 6s and, well... they weren't so little.
So I just thought, maybe he will have big feet and it will be OK. A little extra room wouldn't hurt anyways.
And then I looked at the green pair of booties I had made for Brett. I compared them to the pair I had just made.
Not even remotely close.
So, I started a new pair on size 3s using up the rest of the ball I had left and sacrificed a large bootie to make the second small one and...
|The big one in the back is even bigger in person|
And now he can come anytime his little heart desires, because his clothes are done.
But preferably soon. Because mama's done being pregnant.
