This pattern "Just Right Socks" a free download on Ravelry. I was looking for a "vanilla" sock pattern that would fit and be an easy knit. I can say this is easy to do, but I am not sure I started with enough cast on stitches. I would like a little more give in the fit. It fits me like a glove but is snug. I also will definately make the top longer if I do this pattern again. I seem to tend toward the top not long enough issue as I get bored with the top...need to remember bored is OK if I want longer tops. The thread used is a Lisa Souza in the Bloojay colorway.The blue is very jean blue and I like it a lot. It is heavier/thicker than I have used in the past, but I like it. I just hope it will not be too heavy for some of my shoes.

As I thought of sewing all the curves I remembered the Curve Master Pressure Foot http://www.justcurves.biz I had bought at the Dallas Quilt Show and knew it would be a perfect time to test it and see just how it works and if it is all it says it is. I remembered how easy it looked as it was demonstrated, and I was sure that would not be the case, but hey, guess one has to try. OMG, it was like a dream come true, I have never known such ease in joining curves. This foot works exactly as advertised and better, no pinning, no guessing, no fussing, no problem. I am sailing along on getting it put together. When complete I will post the final results. This foot is amazing and I recommend it highly.
