The bigger little sock was still too small. By about 2.5 inches. I couldn’t believe it. This is more than inelastic yarn; this has to be big feet, too.

Fortunately, I had decided to make these my first-ever cuff down socks, so it was easy to pull back the toe and add a few inches. I also finished the second sock, so the little socks are now finished.

And they aren’t so little. My feet are size 10, and you can see that the socks aren’t all that much shorter than my feet. In fact, I can put them on and they’re only 2 or 3 inches short of fitting me. The recipient is six. I remember that my feet started to get bigger than some adults’ when I was 10 or 11, but six?

They will be tried on again tomorrow, and hopefully they’ll actually fit this time! Third time’s a charm, right?
