I started a pair of socks in 2/11. I think it is my 3rd or 4th knitting project. In late august I had maybe 3 inches past the ribbing. Then I met a wonderful women who was arts and crafts teacher at a camp I was volunteering at. I spied her knitting and started asking her questions. One afternoon when we had a few spare moments she asked me to knit for her. Then she knit for me and explained I was knitting into the backloop which is wonderful for ribbing but very time consuming and not stretchy enough for the body of the sock. I was delighted. Since that day I have finished the 1st sock and am 8 rnds from the heel of the 2nd. At the same time because I needed a project I could take wherever, I knitted a large wool rectangle with a decreased flap that I will be felting this weekend. And I have already ordered new dpn's and the yarn for a pair of socks for my best friend. I drive all my friends crazy measuring their feet mostly during the commercials while BSU games are on. I don't really like football but I can knit my socks and hang with friends if I go to game day parties. It's a win/win.

Did you know your foot size is just your size in inches? So since I wear a 9.5 shoe, from the back of my heel to the ends of my toes is 9.5 inches. I learned this by accident while knitting maybe sock pair number thirty.

I did not know that about shoe/foot size. Good info to have since I have a hard time getting my friends to measure their feet.

I'm pretty sure that's not correct. I have a chart that I got from the shoe industry and the foot that fits a woman's 6.5 measure 8.5";
a size 7 measure 9"; a size 9 measures 9.5". The larger sizes do match the foot in inches to the shoe size. A size 10 measure 10" and a size 11 measure 11".

I use this to shape my felted clogs all the time and the size are pretty true.
