Now I'm REALLY impatient...

I didn't intend to check the blog until after I got my package (didn't want to spoil the surprise!), but clicked on the wrong link. Very happy to see the color and love the look of the pattern!! Hopefully I'll have something waiting for me when I get home tonight...

For MomWhoFan's questions, to measure the circ of your foot - measure the widest spot which is usually the ball of your foot. Hopefully you'll be close because the pattern doesn't look like you could easily add another repeat (or would make it much bigger). If it's really off, you might consider larger needles, but really check your gauge before doing this. Stretchy socks are better small than too big!!

To lengthen the foot, just knit the extra inches before you start the toe decreases... that part is easy to adjust!

Hope this helps... general guidelines (and I'm certainly not an expert!) without seeing the pattern yet. :D
