About a year ago, I bought a pair of sandals on a whim. They were cushy. They were good-looking. They were on sale for practically nothing.
They were also, I realized when I tried to wear them for the first time, half a size too big.
Combine this problem with another problem I gradually began to have over the next year: rather large amounts of leftover sock yarn. Whaddya get? Mini-socks. Socklets. Flippants.
Advantage #1: Use leftover sock yarn for something other than the scrap pile.
Advantage #2: Slightly enlarge the size of my feet in a limited area so as to make them the size of my sandals.
Unforeseen advantage #3: Hey, I like the lace pattern on these!
Foreseen advantage #4: Cushion that area between the big and second toes where the thong part of sandal always rubs.
Am I ready for summer or what?
