or perhaps try knitting elastic into the sock?[/quote]
I'd love to use the other sock yarns that I have in my stash that don't have the elastic in them. Now where could I BUY such thin elastic?? I'd be very interested to know..that's a GREAT idea.
Don't let me not wearing my knit socks with my shoes turn others off the idea. I wear size 11 shoes and I have long toes so believe me when I tell you that I have foot issues as it is without having to try to buy larger shoes!! I really am not interested in wearing my socks out. They work great for me to wear them around the house. I have on a pair right now!!
I knit my socks with size ONE DPN's.
