Lovely. I wear a size 10 (41 European) and I have the small feet in out family. Still I have been enjoying knitting rack of them a pair of socks for Xmas. Definitely contrast heels and toes.

Cornflower

I did enjoy making these, but they just seemed to be never-ending, so well done you, LoriAngela, for your Christmas knitting!
Most of the socks I make are for myself or my daughters, so size 4 or 5 (37/38) - a breeze compared to this giant's pair!

Lucky recipient!

Both my steadiest sock recipients (son and husband) have size 13 feet! I am very particular about buying skeins of sock yarn that have lots of yardage!

Hi, love the blog by the way. Can you tell me how you get the socks so neat and flat. Do you have 'stretchers,, o something?

Cornflower

Thank you!
No stretchers, I just soak them in warm water with a little wool wash for 10 or 15 minutes, then smooth them out on a towel to get them in shape and leave them flat to dry.

Many thanks......keep blogging please.
