I went to the Yarn Shop to get a book on knitting socks on 2 circulars, but saw this. It's a very intriguing thought - making a footprint of your knitting subjects and making a sock. I put off trying this new option in sock making until I had enough 'focus' time to read the book. It actually is quite interesting, as Cat usually is. I decided as each of my adult children came over for a weekend here and there to make a footprint on the inside of an empty cereal box (well some weren't empty yet and had to settle for a tupperware container). So I also made one of my 9 year old grandson's foot and decided to start with his.
They fit him great! I think there is a bit of room for some growth, but for not having him with me, I think the book 'stepped' me in the right direction!
