Christmas is coming

Now that's a scary thought, isn't it?? It's kind of a chronic condition around here, though. . . so on vacation last week I thought I'd get a jump on some Christmas presents. I started a pair of these slippers:

I've used the pattern before, to make a pair in size women's S, and they worked really well. This time I tried to make the largest size -- and even though I was (uncharacteristically) using the yarn the pattern was written for, they came out way too small. And yes, I had done a gauge swatch and was getting the correct gauge. Virtue unrewarded. I am going to rip out and start over using needles two sizes larger, in hopes that will work. But this should teach me not to get big ideas about working ahead!
