# Matvienko will send officials to knit socks

Head to Northern capital has decided to look personally as in Petersburg put things in order, and remained is very dissatisfied. The passers-by skipping on snowdrifts which have been filled up with snow court yard and stops - all this sad picture has called Valentina Matvienko`s anger. It has put before kommunalshchikami rigid terms. All needs to be cleaned by February, 1st. Reprisals otherwise will follow.

- After February, 1st I will do conclusions on heads of all levels, including in Smolnom, administrations of areas, zhilkomservisah, - has told the governor. - will not consult - will be engaged in other work. To knit socks in the evenings.

To be engaged nadomnym in work officials obviously do not want. Therefore promised all to execute in time. A leah there will be dismissals, or remain only words it becomes already clear in two weeks.

By the way, weather forecasters do not promise new snowfalls.

** Technics of knitting of socks (the instruction for “ teapots “ and for the dismissed officials) ** ** **

Socks we knit on five spokes. Quantity of loops at a set - multiple to four. Depending on density and quality of threads for one pair it is spent from 70 to 150 g wool.

** **

to learn, how much loops it is necessary to type Calculation of knitting of socks on spokes in the work beginning, it is necessary to take two measures: a circle of a foot at a stone and on lifting (fig. 1 see). Knowing these sizes, we define an average circle of a foot. It is for this purpose put both measures and we divide result into two.

so, for example, 1 - I a measure - 23 sm, 2 - I the measure - 27 see

Hence, 23 sm + 27 sm = 50 sm; 50 sm: 2 = 25 see

fig. 1 Measurement of a foot |

Thus, in our example we count quantity of loops in 25 see Then we define density of knitting for a cuff and it is typed the necessary quantity of loops. In our example it is typed 60 loops.

##### ** Technology of knitting of socks **

we Start to knit a sock from a cuff. We use an elastic band 1 h 1 or 2 h 2 more often. The height of a usual cuff - from 5 to 8 sm, and double - from 8 to 12 see At cuff knitting it is possible to use a double elastic band. The height of such cuff should not exceed 2-3 see we Knit a cuff on two, and the basic part of a sock - on five spokes.

a double elastic band it is possible to knit a cuff and on five spokes. In this case we type in one and a half time of more loops, than it is required by calculation for the basic pattern. The quantity of loops on each spoke should be even:

1 - j the circle - obverse provjazyvaem, iznanochnye is removed (a thread before a loop);

2 - j the circle - obverse is removed (a thread behind a loop), iznanochnye we knit.

at transition from cuff knitting to the basic vjazke we diminish loops in regular intervals on all number, provjazyvaja on two together in a knitted cloth. Having finished a cuff, we knit the basic viscous from 4-8 sm (at will) to a heel.
