It was tried on the foot analog for the receivee of the other pair, and I think these will be a better fit. And the done ones can go to my sister. Assuming, of course, that I can create a whole sock in 40 hours. Are we to start taking bets?
And the sock yarn.... I wanted to make Gryffendor socks out of my new Harry Potter knitting book, but was unable to find solid yarn at the yarn shop I visited. So, I ordered some online www.simplysockyarn.com and it came super quick, and was pretty inexpensive as well.
Anyway, that's it.
