Kilt Hose First Fitting

Posted by mtmom on July 12, 2009

We had our first fitting on Friday — checking lengths and snugness.

They need about 1″ more height, but no more  (I had another pair of expert eyes to check for me — thanks Aaron).  The toes could use a bit more room, but they’ll be OK if I don’t have time to get to them before next weekend when Robert goes back to Ireland.  I think I’d make another pair a bit more roomy overall — my last pair (for myself) sagged in the legs and I didn’t want that to happen with these.

    I love them! The color is so stunning and they fit great! He’s lucky to have you to knit such gorgeous kilt hose!

    My socks usually stretch out a bit after wearing and as long as he washes them correctly they would probably be just fine. Loose socks that always slide down are the worst, and I can imagine they would not be too endearing to a bagpiper (no free hands to hike them back up again). Good choice of color.
