I have finished the Broadripple socks that my friend Nancy commissioned for me to make for her sister. I’ve never met the sister, so I have this fear in my gut that she won’t like my socks, but I guess that’s Nancy’s problem……hehe
I’ve never knit for such petite feet either. Her sister wears a 7 1/2 shoe with apparently narrow heels. She has ‘apparently’ thinnish ankles and calves too. I’m used to knitting socks for the big footed people in my family. I think I knit these appropriately smallish…..watch, they’ll be too small! Sigh….I need to get over my insecurity!
I used the Broadripple pattern from Knitty.com. I knit these pretty much as the pattern said, but I decreased the number of stitches in the heel flap/heel to accommodate the narrow heel. I used 2.5mm addi turbo circulars.
