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!
