They are finally done!
Shoe size: Men’s14/15
Yarn: Socks that Rock Heavyweight (Better part of TWO skeins)
These are freaking HUGE. They are a gift for a very tall friend, who threw down the gauntlet when he said: "Oh no, you don’t have to knit me socks". Riiight.
I knit the entire first sock then realized I did not have enough yarn to complete the second one, so I ordered more. And of course, though the same colorway, the second was far more intense than the first. This would be why on just about every single yarn label on the planet, it is advised to buy enough yarn at one time to complete your project. So I ripped back the toe and the foot AND the gusset AND the heel flap and reknit them with the second skein. Then I knit the top of #2 with skein number one and the bottom with skein number 2. Balanced. Phew!
And if they don’t fit, he can darn well frame them.
