Dang it, I think I may just have to make these!


Yay! I basically had the jist of it from your picture but thanks for the in depth tutorial. I'm going to try the magic cast on when I get a chance being as I'm using sport weight yarn so I don't have that many stitches to cast on (read: under 100).


Wow -- you did all this and I'm still working on the 2nd Embossed Leaves sock. Getting there, though -- I have turned the heel and just finished the gusset decreases.

Thanks for the wonderful tute -- I must try this!

Hey, cool! I had the same idea for the pair I was planning. Thanks for saving me all the work of figuring it out! :)


I must make these, I have a high instep too. Thanks for all the detail you put into your patterns.

I was just browsing Ravelry and saw the Boston Terrier group and thought 'I bet Maia's a member.' Sure enough,there you are! Ravelry is addictive isn't it lol


Maia! You never cease to amaze me! I haven't yet tried the Sidewinders but they are on my to-knit list for fall. I think your adaptation will fit me better since I have that damn "cankle" thing going! You are a knitting genius...I am not worthy!
