The girl has socks.

I wouldn’t believe how big Maggie’s feet are except that I just knit her pretty big socks and they fit. I estimated her foot size when she was away at school and I thought maybe her feet were about 5″ around and 6″ long. WRONG. Her feet are more than 7″ around and 7.25″ long. The socks seem too big when I am looking at them but they fit her perfectly. I am so confused. When did she become not a baby?

It was gorgeous outside today after school, so she played with her new pocket knife at the picnic table and posed her feet for some pictures. It was cute. I love the pictures.

As much as I’d like to deny it, Jerry has big feet, too. If not big for his age, at least bigger than I expect them to be. I am taking no chances with him, so I had him trace the outline of his foot and measure the circumference of his foot and ankle. He picked out the yarn (blue and gray from the stash, good stuff) and hopefully everyone will have toasty warm toes if, by chance, it ever gets cold here in North Carolina.

More information about yarn and pattern can be found on Ravelry.
