Here are the giant socks I finished a couple of days ago.
These are knit from Trekking 6-ply in color # 1806, on U.S. size 2 (2.75mm) needles. They were made for size 14 wide male feet and used up almost every bit of the yarn.
I started another, not-quite-so-giant sock:
Funky stripes, eh? The yarn is Online Supersocke 6-Ply Winter Color and is old — it’s been in my stash for a number of years, and I think a yarn distributor gave it to me. This is colorway #888. It’s another sport/dk weight sock yarn and I’m using my 2.75mm needles on it as well.
I am knitting along on Filey — see?
I’ve not knit on Trillian since last weekend, but I plan to take it with me this weekend on our knitting retreat so it will likely get some love then.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to get ready to go pick up the Knitgirllls at the airport. Later, from 4 – 7 pm-ish, we’ll all be at fibre space in Alexandria, VA. Hope to see some of you there!
There will likely be no blog post on Sunday since I’ll get home late-ish. But I’ll be back next Tuesday.
“I’ll just stay here, okay?”
