Yes, my 11 year old and I wear the same size.
She's gonna be tall like her Daddy methinks.
Pattern: Artichoke Socks
Yarn: Jill Draper's Splendor Sock in the Yarmouth colorway
Verdict: These socks have been a royal pain.
I started them at Sock Summit, which apparently made
my guage funky. However, I didn't realize that
Sock Summit knitting affected my guage til I got into the
second sock. The colors of the yarn pooled
completely differently!! UGH!
So I ended up cutting off (literally, gulp) the cuff of the
first sock (since it refused to be unraveled nicely),
putting the live heel and foot stitches onto a holder and
re-knit the cuff. It came out looking just like I wanted, phew.
Then using the Kitchener stitch, I joined the new
cuff with the live stitches from the foot.
And . . . it worked!!
Hurry up Fall weather. I need to wear some woolies!!
