Sure enough it was a clean break. I'm not sure, but it sounded like a stress fracture, which doesn't surprise me. She's been super active and athletic since she was just a wee lass. Did I mention she's a black belt? Yeah ...
Anyhow, a life of crutches and cast for 6 weeks ... I wanted to make her something that would I dunno, show some supportive spirit and maybe keep the bottom of her cast from getting too dirty.
Originally I got it into my head to just knit a giant tube and then when I did a circumference test over her cast, I realized how awkward it would look. So ... I thought, GIANT SOCK! Also this way she keeps her toes and heel cozy! Cast cozy!
I used some worsted acrylic I had in my stash.
I dropped it off at her office while before I left for the river. I asked her to send me a few photos for knitting friends. I'm so glad it fit!
But what's more hysterical is that it seems her beautiful but ginormous cat person has decided to claim it. What's up with Cats & Yarn?
