After flailing around with 43 unsuccessful attempts on starting my toe-up socks, I finally feel that maybe, juuuuuuust maybe that I have started a sock that will actually fit a human foot as opposed to a giant. I am a wee paranoid that it's too big. I mean, it seems to fit me well. They're comparable in size to other socks I've knit and are smaller than my crappy store bought socks. However I am making them for a friend who has slightly smaller feet than I. Oh well, hopefully she'll appreciate the effort made even if they flap around when she walks.
