Ok.. so I'm making some socks for myself from a Crazy Zauberball..



And since I have very small feet, and JT's favorite color right now is purple, I thought I could use the rest of the yarn to make him some socks.. So, I talked to LilyAn, and found out his shoe size.. I went to Sockulator, and plugged in my numbers...

Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

I found out that JT and I wear almost the same size sock...


Needless to say, I had to get more yarn with some puple in it for JT...

They're looking good.

You'd better make sure they stay firmly on your feet next time you see JT.

That's my favourite Zauerball colour.

Socks look lovely. Perhaps you could make Miss Kate a pair with the leftover yarn instead.

Love the socks. More purple would be nice too. Your feet must be very tiny. Or JTs are very big.

All of the above... I wear a 5 1/2... but you can't hardly find that size any more, so, I settle on a 6 in most cases.. and wear thick socks...

My mother wears a child's size 4. She does not enjoy princesses on her shoes.
