Ready to Start

I'm ready to start my first pair of Monkey Socks. I have my yarn - Wildfoote from Brown Sheep Company in the Bluegrass colorway. I have needles - size 1 and size 2. Therein lies the question ---- it seems like many people did their socks on size 1 rather than the size 2 called for in the pattern.

If anyone did them on 2's ....did you find them baggy? I've gone back and read all the posts. One person mentioned that the pattern was not very stretchy, but it seems more people thought it was too large.

Any advice? 1's or 2's --- I wear a size 9 shoe and my feet are somewhat narrow.

i have size 9 narrow feet and i used a size 2

the calf is baggy (and i have thick calves) but the foot fit ok-ish

maybe use size 1 for the calf and 2 for the foot? but note that the sock is not terribly stretchy

I'd say to use the #1's - although the socks fit OK, they are a tiny bit large & would have been better if I had used 1's instead of 2's. I have similar feet to you
