Twenty Rows Later...

Heels have gussets, and the sole of the foot, measuring from the beginning of the heel turn, measure 3.75. Three more inches of foot, and just a little than three  inches for the toe.... Round and round we go, to a finished pair of socks!

The cuffs and leg are very loose on my LEGS, but I have thick peasant bones, and wide feet, and the cuff, while not snug,  isn't at all loose. The foot portion of the sock is 4 stitches (½ inch) narrower, and grips my feet much better.

Here is a better view of the picked up gusset stitches, and the nice tight corner a well picked up plus 1 stitch.  I use Charlenes Schurch's method--make one stitch out of 1/2 stitch on flap and 1/2 stitch on instep. I think this is the best method, (well its the best for me!)

I want these finished and to start some booties for the girls... (and to continue with the cowl that is still sitting at “just started” ) so its off to knit it go!
