What's new: sock

I finished my second attempt at a sock this week:

GIANT sock

It's H-U-G-E. This is the product of the small size instructions on the pattern I used. I swear I used the proper size needles.

I can wear it, but it's big and saggy. I think it'd make a nice second layer sock for the winter...or maybe just a stocking for the fireplace.

I really can't decide if I want to make a second one (this one took many many hours).

But, it would help me finally eliminate my last nagging areas of laddering and gaps.

My first sock had some real issues:

But I have none of that this time around!

For those curious, I used some "self striping" yarn, to make it look all fair isle and impressive (but not really!).
