I’m making a pair of toe-up Jaywalkers following these instructions.
Now I’m pretty new to sock knitting and I think this is the first pair I made with a gusset, so I have no idea where to start the gusset. She says that she wears a 7.5 and starts the gusset at 4.5-5 inches. I wear an 8 (my feet are 9 inches long) so I thought starting the gusset at 5.25 would be good. Now I have 1 inch to go on the heel turn and these socks are already 10 inches long! If I kept on knitting, they would be a full 2 inches too long! Now I have to rip more than half of what I’ve done so far… ARGH!!!
Of course, NOW that I screwed up, I realized that there was a way to calculate how many rows it would take to complete the gusset and heel turn and so to figure out when to start the gusset increases… Oh well, live and learn, I guess!
Thank you for listening, I’m sure some of you will have BTDT!
