In next life, have smaller feet.
Pat and I actually got together today, in person. We realized that every row in my socks is a whole inch longer than one row in her socks!! I am not going to do the math on this one, but -- sheesh! There are a whole lot of rows in a sock. It's 1,000 or more extra stitches per sock for me. One of my reasons for starting this project was to make a whole bunch of socks to keep, but I am sorely tempted to switch to knitting for my size 6 friends. . .
