Mom’s sock – before and after, Part I

Here’s Mom’s first sock.

I didn’t start the second one until she tried on the first one.  And it’s a good thing too!  It was way too big.  Hey!  How can it be too big when I knit it to the measurements Mom sent me?  Well, I measured her foot myself, and discovered that the measurements were all too big!  Why oh why?  Mom said “well I didn’t want it to be too small”.  Bless her.

Here’s her sock now:

From now on I knit socks for others based on the shoe size and that’s it!

Update:  I’ve started again, 2 pattern repeats smaller.  I’m half way down the leg and it’s fitting fine now.  I also think I will make the toe sections for left and right feet (start the decreases sooner for the small toes).  After starting these socks so many times, I won’t ever make this pattern again!  So Mom, they will be unique in the family!
