I visited my massage therapist ten days ago. I noticed her largish sneakers – I asked what shoe size she wore – size 10.
I had already finished the first sock of a pair which I set aside. I worked on the second sock, extended the foot length by eight rows so it will fit her size 10 foot, then finished the toe. Next I unravelled the toe of the first sock, matched the yarn (which I happened to have on hand because I unrolled the better part of a pattern repeat so my second sock would match the first), added the required number of rows and reknit the toe.
That Christmas gift is now done.
On to the next – for a smaller foot – size 6 shoe.
