The first sock took weeks. Craig has size 11 UK feet.
Picture of my laptop included for scale! It's a 15 inch screen lappy.
The yarn looks totally different with a flash!
Unfortunately with the crap weather we've had lately this was the best light I could get, and I swear it wasn't that dark when I took them!
The top yarn is the body of the sock. I had one ball in each colour from Craig's Mam. So I bought another ball of the top yarn so he can have fraternal socks. The bottom ball (sounds a bit rude!) will make up the rest of the sock to his preferred height.
