You know, when a pattern designer tells you to use a certain size needle, you should probably listen. Or at least take it into account. Don’t do what I did and go down two needle sizes “because I have small feet! And I knit all my other socks on US1.5s and they all come out fine.” Really. That’s what I said. And now I have most of a sock that fits perfectly… over my hand.
Since I am too much of a wimp to rip out an entire sock that is still perfectly usable, I’ll finish the pair and send them off to someone with even smaller feet than I.
