So, I've only knit socks for myself and people who's feet I can measure so far. How do I know how much to knit if all I have is their shoe size? I want the socks to be a surprize so I don't want to ask them to measure their foot, but I also want them to fit!

I've seen a chart for this somewhere. I'll keep a look out for it and post it when I find. Hopefully someone else will have the chart bookmarked and can post it faster than I can find it. :D

I use http://www.i18nguy.com/l10n/shoes.html but have no idea how reliable it is. (I'm in the same position -- am in the middle of a pair of socks that's a gift for someone who has no idea, and I know her shoe size but that's it. I'm kind of worried that they're going to be too small. or too large. or something. :shifty:)

About has charts for men (http://shoes.about.com/od/fitcomfort/a/men_inches.htm) shoe size
Or for womans (http://shoes.about.com/od/fitcomfort/a/wshoeconversion.htm) shoe sizes
it matches the sizes i have for me and my kids, so I feel confident

If the socks come out too big just drop something heavy on their feet.
