Soxyzz Info Sheet
The Soxyzz!! (Pronounced SOCK-size)
The whole idea behind the Soxyzz was to eliminate the need to go digging for shoe sizing charts every time I wanted to make socks for someone else... Okay, men’s size 11 is... how many inches?? SOOoooo, I took the most common US shoe sizes for men, women, children and wee ones and put them on to a ruler. It is sturdy enough to stand on - place your foot on it, standing, heel to the back, look down, and there is your shoe size - and foot length - like a shoe store sizer.
Know someone’s size and need a length? Look at the sizing along the sides of the Soxyzz and your corresponding length is right there.You don’t even need the person to be there, which makes it great for gift knitting. Available in Inches and Centimeters, or both!! I now have Euro and UK versions as well as a MEGA Soxyzz, which goes up to a men’s size 16, and a MINI Soxyzz, for those little feet!!
With the Soxyzz, all you have to do is get your person to stand on the ruler, and voila! You have their size!! Or, if they're not right there handy, you can easily look up their shoe size on the Soxyzz and get the correct measurements.
What is this for? For measuring your feet! Just like the foot sizers in the shoe stores, simply place it on the floor, stand on it, and you will have an accurate measurement of your foot (ergo sock size), as the sizes are marked along the sides of the measure. The Soxyzz can also be used as, well, it IS a ruler... It can be used to measure your WIP (work in progress) - Just insert it as you are knitting to measure your progress on the leg or the foot.
Works for both toe up and cuff down!!
