I'm so sorry to hear that, especially as you've been planning, investigating, and looking forward to making them for awhile now.

So...while I'm redoing them, I've been looking around the web some more and found Formula Toe Up Socks For All Sizes which has charts and calculations and all kinds of scientific/mathematical looking formulae and stuff that is just way beyond me tonight. I'll print it out and before the gusset increases see if I can put it too use. I did notice that it tells how to decide whether you need a high instep adjustment.
Oh no, the dread late night math wall! I just looked at it, and realized that I'm still entirely too decaffeinated to think in numbers now.

Do I remember correctly that you have high insteps? I may have run squarely into my memory wall with that one.

You do realize you're encouraging me to be obnoxious about socks.
