  1. I recently saw my first pair of socks with a side seam. First pair, and I have been knitting for over 70 years. Can you direct me Jimmie to such a pattern? Can’t seem to locate one.

  2. Thanks so much for this plethora of sock patterns and all of your knowledge regarding socks. I have attempted worsted weight short row toe up short socks and was satisfied with them. I have a little more trouble with regular ones with regards to cuff down socks as the leg portion does not it my calf. I am considering a private knitting session with local ladies who offer classes to get the fit that suits me. Like anything else, it’s just practice, which I obviously need more of. Again, thanks for sharing all these different patterns as I will use the as a reference in the future.

    1. Hello Susie,
