The Soxyzz!! Foot Measuring Tool ©
This handy ruler was born from constantly having to look for shoe sizing charts every time I wanted to make socks for someone else! 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, 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. It also happens to fit right into your sock, making it easy to measure your work in progress. Works great for both cuff down and toe up, as both ends are curved to fit into either the toe or the heel of your sock.
The Soxyzz has the most common US shoe sizes, for men, ladies, kids, toddlers and infants! I now have Euro and UK versions as well.
Made from the same material as my sock blockers, 1/4" Baltic Birch ply, it's sturdy enough to stand on, even on carpet. It's sanded smooth and finished with several coats of polyurethane to protect the natural beauty of the wood. Edges are then treated with a finishing wax, smooth and snag free.
SINGLE MEASUREMENT (i.e. 'inches' OR 'cm') versions of the Soxyzz have one side blank, and can therefore be personalized with your name, Ravelry handle, nick name or shop logo, FREE OF CHARGE, just leave me a note ;~)
