Relying on the kindness of strangers and friends


I have a huge favor to ask you guys out there. I'm working on a pattern for a company and I need to have some good leg measurements for all different kinds of women, from petit to zaftig. I would NOT expect anyone to want to leave those sorts of measurements in my comments, so I'm hoping I can sweet talk you into emailing me those measurements with assurance that your numbers and names will never be released in combination with each other.

So, what I'd need is:

  1. Circumference at ball of foot

  2. Circumference at ankle

  3. Circumference at knee

  4. Distance from ankle to knee

  5. Circumference at mid thigh (Sit down. Measure halfway between knee and crease of lap)

  6. Distance from knee to mid thigh

or click the "Contact" button above. Either will allow you to send me an email. Include the subject line "my leg" and the measurements for each number in the body of the message.

And because I know this is a bit of a pain in the butt, I'll be sending one random contributor a special gift. The winner will be picked Friday night and can choose either a knitting or a spinning related little prize.


Alright, but just so long as this information is not used against me... ;)

I'd like to think that the worst case scenario is that Marnie is going to knit us all beautiful, custom fitted thigh-high socks.

Cool! I for one would be happy to. I'm at work, but I do have a measuring tape (knitter here!) and as soon a the guys leave, I'll send you the #s.

Okay, I'm glad it's anonymous. But don't you go eyeing my fat thighs this weekend! (Just kidding. Julia knows I have a complex about thighs.)

the email's on the way!

Okay . . . email is on its way!

Do you want the measurement with our leg up like the picture or standing up normally?

Email's on the way! Could it be leggings?
