Ok. Here is the “after” picture.
So, I’m totally not thrilled with the pattern. They’re way too loose around the ankle, too tight at the toes, and the pattern was sooo insanely confusing. So, since I need to make at least one more pair, I think I will definitely try a different pattern and see where it takes me. Since these are for someone with a much smaller foot than mine, I might try felting them again, to see if the ankle part tightens up at all. Worth a shot, otherwise these might end up in the trash.
