I finally finished my sister's socks. I am very nervous about the fit. You may remember that I knit her a pair before and they didn't fit so I gave them away. So I worry...I could have made the cuffs a little longer but I was afraid I would get into the calf shaping issues as the calves in my family are quite shapely (read freakishly large). I do hope they fit, I wonder if I should make her wait until her birthday in August to get them? she isn't very patient about surprises. She shakes and rattles presents and does everything she can to trick you into telling her what it is. When I was pretty young she talked me into helping me wrap my Christmas presents. She would even help me wrap the one for her and keep her eyes closed the whole time...so without further ado, here are my sister's socks.
