My trainer asked for "socks like you wear". Well, that's not quite going to happen, since he has size twelve feet! Still, during our recent hiking and camping excursion I cast on and knit him a pair of 72 stitch socks. Short leg, heel flap and gusset. I spent a lot of time thinking about whether having longer feet means having bigger ankles and so on. Who can say?
I am also really quite amused at how much bigger than my socks these are:
I really enjoyed knitting in self striping yarn. it's been a looong time (as in 2011) since I did so, and it was so lazy and fun.
