Have you ever measured your feet? Not to figure out what size shoes to buy but to tell someone else what size socks to knit. I did that once a long time ago for a sock exchange. That is when I learned my feet are basically square. They’re 8 inches long (yes, I have stupidly small feet. So small that shoe shopping is depressing. I’m often sent to the kids section.) and 8 inches around. I have what I call Fred Flintstone feet. They’re wide and short.
I think my quirky foot size is why I like hand knit socks. I can make them just right. They aren’t too long or too narrow. They are just right.
As you can see I’ve been working on the heel. I went with the pattern and did a plain stockinette heel. I’ll regret that later if the heels wear out quickly but there is nylon in this yarn so I’m taking the chance. I did 8 repeats of the lace pattern on the leg which when added to the ribbing made for an 8 inch leg length.
How’s your crafting? Did you get some time to enjoy it over the weekend?
