Good measure

I know that for much of North America, Tuesday is the first day back to the work week after Labour Day, the first day of school, the first day back to reality after summer (wah)…But if you’re able to be distracted for a few tiny moments, I have a question for you.

I’m thinking knee sock thoughts again, and am thinking design thoughts for patterns still to come, and wondered if y’all would mind…measuring your legs for me. I’m trying to get an idea of the range of sizes legs come in. So if you’re up for it, and don’t mind stating measurements on a public blog, would you mind grabbing your tape measure and letting me know the following?:

A (ankle): circumference of the ankle/lower leg at its slimmest point, just above the ankle.
C (calf): circumference of the calf/upper leg at its widest point, usually a couple of inches below the knee.

(If you’re curious, my numbers are 15.5 inches at the calf and 9 inches at the ankle).

I hope your week goes well, whether or not you’re back to reality!
