Yesterday I cast on fora generic toe up formula. But, since the only measurement I had for my dad’s foot is that he wears a 9 1/2 shoe, I had to guesstimate. I tried measuring one of my husband’s socks and taking it from there, but about 20 rows in I didn’t feel confident that it was working. So I ripped it out and decided to do a basic top down sock since that’s what I’m most comfortable with. I was thinking, why can’t you just take the measurements from a top down and do it in reverse? But I suppose there is a certain deftness of fingers you need to contemplate a pattern in reverse. And if you know me, I probably don’t have it.
I have to say that I love how soft the Imagination sock yarn is and that it’s knitting up very nicely. It doesn’t seem to be pooling very badly yet. My dad isn’t real picky about his socks and is in fact really lowkey. Instead of picking a pattern with crazy cables or anything I’m doing a simple K4 P2 ribbing that will go all the way down to the toes (except for the underside).
The weather is still pretty freezing so I’ll probably get lots more knitting done today and then later on tonight with my knitting group!
