WIP Weds: Socks a great small travel project

Not that I’m going anywhere in particular, but my small pencil case fits neatly into my bag. I purchased this yarn on my trip to  Romni Wools last Weds

DGS Confetti Superwash

I am making Sue’s EZ Toe-Up Socks, using DGS Confetti superwash sock yarn.

My niece is visiting from the states. While I have the opportunity I drew an outline of her foot to make the socks made to measure.

The foot print

 
I usually make the sock the same length from the toe to the heel as from the heel to the
 
top so they don’t slide down the leg.
 
The golden rule for body measurements says that at
 
the  point of your leg that is the same measurement from your toe to your ankle bone, will be the point at which your calf begins to signifiantly
 
flare out. In this case toe to ankle bone 7″,  (note the waste yarn at this point) therefore total lenght of sock measured along top of foot, from toe to cuff 14″.  Heel added after.
 

Sarah's socks so far

 
 
Thus socks need to end at this point (mid-calf) or at the top of the calf muscle (knee sock). So if your socks sag try it out, this works for me!
For more WIP Wed visit our friends a Tami’s Blog, thanks for stopping by see you Friday!
