He can't complain anymore

Ladies and gentlemen (though I suspect it's mostly ladies that read this)...I'm proud to present...G's Trekking XXL socks. I've been working on these for about a month. In fact, I think exactly a month. Done, except for the weaving in, but pretty close. They're not an exact match. I did more decreases on one toe than the other, but if you won't tell, I won't. I think he'll be happy to finally have a pair done.

And on G's size 15 feet:

The vital stats:

Pattern: No specific pattern, just a larger version of my basic, generic sock pattern
Yarn: Trekking XXL, Color 122
Needles: Crystal Palace dpns, size 1
Started: April 15, 2006
Finished: May 15, 2006

So what's next, you ask? Lace, baby. I'm going to work more on Birch, and for portability, yet another pair of socks. STR this time. Maybe I'll go back to this:

Yep. No more complaining! And size 15! Man oh Man, I thought dh's 13s were a long sock. Good on you Jocele. And keep me posted on birch. I've yet to take that plunge... I've got a bit of kiri done but she's been put aside...

15 isnt that big... compared to guys in the NBA. Or Bozo the Clown. As for the socks, well, they sure are comfy. And just for the record... I wasnt complaining. I was merely commenting on the current state of the MANY projects that have shown promise, yet have not come to fruition.
