Sock sizing?
About how, um, big is the average knitted sock pattern? I see notations for leg circumference on a lot of patterns but don't see guidelines for what size foot they'll fit.

Anyone have un-petite feet here? Do you have to adjust for your size when you knit socks? I hate disclosing my shoe size.

Since socks are normally knit until two inches before the length of your foot (at least the ones I've used), you should be able to adjust them to larger/smaller feet if needed. If the pattern doesn't say anything like that for when you end the foot, ending 2 inches in advance is generally the rule of thumb (or toe... . Sorry, I had to throw in a bad pun).
