I haven't looked. Wishful thinking probably.

I went on a baby pattern splurge a few months ago. Pattern and yarn love and acquisition went hand in hand back then. Got the baby mocs, merry janes, and the clogs, plus yarn for all. Have yet to do the latter 2, but if they're as easy as the mocs, the next baby to come around may likely get one of them, depending on gender.

I posted pics of the mocs on FB, and a bunch of grown ups chimed in wanting adult sizes of the Moc, which wasn't available then. It is now, as is the adult clog. Dunno if I want to go there yet, from what i can gather, the adult clog is felted after starting the sock, then the sock is finished. But who knows what I'll decide to work on after Christmas.

Seeing small stitches for me involves bright light and taking my glasses off. You need one of those magnifying lights on your wishlist. Maybe you can get one 1/2 off or something. Skinny yarn is fun IMO and I'd hate to have to give it up.
I'll always take that BOGO, GG!

I guess I should've clarified a bit more on the skinny yarn thing. This particular color approaches being too dark for me to see comfortably at small gauges. It would be nice if someone made 10x magnifying glasses. I'll figure something out because I have no intention of giving up skinny yarn.

The moc pattern should be relatively easy to rework to go up in gauge to 7 per inch on size 3s (my favorite easy to see skinny yarn needle & gauge), the sock is no big deal because it's white or near enough. To mix project threads, the Georgie Porgie book got here, and its gauge is 7sts/inch and will be cream so I'm set up beautifully there for eye comfort and gauge.

I haven't seen the grown up Merry Janes on Bekah's site but she does have the grown up clog pattern: Really, really nice clogs.

I've always liked that pattern, too, although I haven't ever made it. Glad to know that it knits up quickly, too!

FO: Baby Moc-A-Socs UPDATE
Finally got the cute little buggers finished in between babysitting and our monthly family dinner convocation that was hosted by me!
Here's hoping that the link to my Rav page with a pic works: I'm a techno idiot on my iPad when it come to uploading photos.
