frankandr4387850 asked:
What type of sole did u use for the sweater socks? you have amazing projects on your website .. thanks guys and gals .. Ria Durban Kzn RSA
J Howell answered:
The sole is made from a felted wool sweater as well. You can use a soft leather piece if you like as well. I find a thicker wool sweater that has been felted works great. You can find more information on my blog. www.youmakeitsimple.blogspot.com

Happy New Year. I've purchased this pattern some time ago and have made several boots for family and friends. One comment I repeatedly hear is that the opening to the foot (which would be around the ankle) is a bit tight. How would you suggest opening that without lengthening the shoe size?
J Howell answered:
Hello. Thanks for getting back to me with some feedback. I do appreciate that. I have done some tweaking to the pattern to open up the ankle area a little more. If you would like to email me so I can get you address, I will send you the updated pattern. I think you can also go to your craftsy account and you should be able to see an update for the pattern. Either way, let me know if you need further assistance in getting the updated pattern. Happy New Year to you to!
