I'm Ashamed of These Shoes
It's hard to tell from the picture, but the left shoe is a half inch longer and a quarter inch skinnier than the right shoe. The main reason these turned out to be different sizes is that I started in the wrong place after I finished the sole on the left one. That's also why the toe is messy. But I also don't consistently crochet my stitches the same size. I'm not sure how to be more consistent, and I don't know why I didn't have this problem on the hat. Maybe I need to make a gauge swatch and continually check against it. I wonder how the real crocheters do it.
