Clearly, I am insane.
My only little girl, four years old, is in Kindergarten. Right now. My only child in the care of the public school system. It is a frightening thought.
So, out of a bit of nervousness last night, I made a gauge swatch. Swatching is not insane you say? A-ha! I shall show you.
It's about four inches from the heel to the top. It's got an eye-of-the-partridge heel and I'll be arsed if I can remember how I decreased for the toe. I'm proud of myself for being able to do this off the top of my head, but...I made a four-inch sock. Just because.
Here are some pictures of the design process. Note the monkey.
