I'm a sole, man

I'm sure the larger-than-average-footed among you will feel me when I say that "one size fits all" patterns for footwear make me a little nervous.


(Sorry for the terrible low-light photo, but I just finished the knitting and I simply had to show you today!) (Yes, I'm also reading today -- and finding that garter stitch on straight needles was nice and easy to pick up and put down between chapters of Law in the Domains of Culture.)

Anyway, the pattern is the Purl Bee's Mary Jane Slippers, and I'm using Moda Dea Washable Wool in "real teal" (not that fake kind, no sir). The pattern calls for 3.75mm needles, and I went up to 4.0mm due to previously mentioned large-footedness. Of course the garter stitch stretches hugely, so hopefully these will fit. And soon. 'Cause my feet are cold. (It's snowing today. Sigh.)

Eeeps!!! My feet are "large" also and I am ever weary of one size fits all, because, well, we are all not one size!

If it makes you feel any better, mine have stretched a lot!

I hope it does stretch out because I have those cuties queued up in Ravelry, too.
