just finished a pair of worsted wool socks, and thought they fit, but decided they were too snug, so once again my small-footed daughter has another pair of socks! think my problem is knitting too tightly, also the pattern measurement for foot length seems too short-- linknit41
Darn. They say the third time (I hope you haven't gone past this already) is the charm. It takes a while to sort out these size issues sometimes, but you'll get it. It is nice you at least have someone in the family who can use them.
