They took me about two weeks -- two very long weeks! -- but my brother-in-law's socks are finally done.
Pattern: 2x2 rib worked over 68 stitches, decreased to 64 stitches for the foot
Yarn: Knit Picks Essential (75% superwash wool, 25% nylon), colorway Navy, two skeins
Needles: two 12" US 1 (2.5 mm) Addi Turbo circs
Started/Completed: November 26/December 11
Recipient: my big-footed brother-in-law
Just how big are these socks? Here are some shots for comparison. For starters, they're more than an inch longer than my rather sizeable feet.
All I can say is that my brother-in-law had better appreciate these! Assuming he does, and he wants more socks, he'd better like socks knit from heavier yarn.
