I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

First, US women’s shoe sizes are BS. When I make socks for the dimensions I find online, they don’t seem to fit the matching live feet. This time, I decided to find someone with similar sized feet to the giftee and then talk them into trying on the first sock. Thankfully, even though this sock fit me (size 7.5 shoe), the yarn is just stretchy because my size 6 friend declared them a perfect fit.

Second, while Meghan was admiring the sock, she noticed that maybe I hadn’t woven in the end? but there was very little tail left? Sons of biscuits! I thought I’d done my usual method of knitting in the tail and for some reason I did not and I snipped the cast on tail off way way way too short. So, I carefully wove a bit of yarn through the cast on, tied a discreet knot and will weave in the longer tail…..tomorrow.

On to the second sock!
