I Stand Corrected

TTS size Did I mention my Eyelet and Feather Socks pattern was accepted for the new 101 One Skein Wonders book?

Yeah, I thought so.

I have since found out that a shawl P designed and fingerless mitts "Giggles" designed were also accepted. (Giggles doesn't have a blog.)

This means Knitting Centrall totally owns that book with three out of the 101 patterns being from our staff. We are so fraking tallented, we should make a book that is just our patterns. But we're all too busy.

Not So Big After All
After going on and on about how big the sock I'm making for The Guy in the Art Department is, I decided to give some perspective.

So I got one of my little, bitty socks and one of Hubby's socks and I held them all up together.

And I noticed the sock for TGitAD was the same size as one of Hubby's socks.


In response to my question, Hubby says he wears a size 10 or 10.5 shoe. Which is only a wee bit smaller than the size 11 TGitAD wears.


Turns out this sock isn't so much bigger than socks I've knit in the past. Turns out I need to calm down a little. Probably shows how long it's been since I made Hubby socks that I've got the size all squewed in my head.

Summer of Socks 09
A little bird also told me that because of the "no stress" theme for this years Summer of Socks, WIPs do count toward your total. So these socks totally count.

Last year only socks knit between June 21 and uh, sometime in September, counted because there were contests and stuff.
