Etsy sale!

March 17, 2008

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In honor of St. Paddy’s, and spring, everything in the store is 30% off – just wait for a revised invoice before paying.

A quiet weekend meant I made some good progress on my Lady Eleanor – I’m on ball #7 of 10. I decided to take a break from knitting last night and weave in some of the ends – I know it would drive me crazy at the end otherwise! Progress on my dad’s socks is still slow going. I tend to be in a hurry about wrapping up socks (esp. when they’ve been lingering as long as this pair) and now I’m a little worried I’m making it too short – anyone have a good rule of thumb for how tall they make socks for their guys? I’m going by the measurements in one of my sock books, but it still seems to short.

All in all, good progress on the March goals!

    When I made my dad’s first pair of socks (which ended up going to my grandpa), he requested the leg to be the same length as the foot when you fold it at the heel. This was for a size 8-ish foot, but I think the rule of thumb would work for other sizes too since longer feet generally mean longer legs.
