If Wishes Were Horses

Begger's would ride (and I'd have a stable!)

And if my feet were the size of display models (US size 6) –my socks would be past ready for toe shaping. But my size 9 gun boat feet will need a few more rounds (a bit more than half an inch—but not a full one!) before I start to shape the toe.

I discontinued the stitch pattern on the instep just after 5 inches of the foot—I find I don't like most stitch pattern inside my shoes—and these thick, plush, cushy socks are likely to be a cold day choice—and winter shoes tend to be more closed—so stocking knit is a better for the lower half of the foot—faster to knit, too. I'll finish them tonight, with time to spare.

Then tomorrow-- I'll be ready to start my next shawl/scarf. I am going to start with a provisional cast on—and leave an edging till last--since I still haven't made up my mind about what I want.

Troy, I love those socks. The yarn is great. What is the difference between a size 6 sock and a 7.5? I'm trying to get some info together so that I do not have to frog and frog until it's right. No one in my whole family has a size six foot!
