    Love them! I just started learning how to knit socks but I am struggling with gauge. Unless I am knitting for the NBA I am doing something wrong. How do you determine your measurements?

      I had several false starts in the gauge department too. After a few tries, I found Socks From the Toe Up by Wendy D. Johnson. The instructions for measuring are great! She recommends measuring around the ball of the foot and then taking off 10%. Knit a quick swatch and you have a good idea of how many total stitches you’ll need. Now I know that with size 2 needles and sock yarn, I need 56 sts. For my sweetheart, I need 72. Easy!
