I am just trying this out.

If it works, this is a picture of a pair of socks I knitted for my husband for Christmas.

It doesn't show... but each sock is over 29 inches long from toe up the front of the sock. They end about mid-calf on him!

He is 6 feet 8 inches tall. My first pair of socks I ever knitted. I thought I was never going to be done, and had to force myself to start the second sock right away!

They look great, and long ;)

Big feet run in my family, but only my nephews have feet as big as your husband's. I think size 12 is about as high as I have to go.

I had to read this thread because I'm knitting my DH a pair of socks on size 2s and I've told him more than once : "Curse you and your big clodhoppers! If these were for me they'd be done by now!" ... and he's only like a size 11.

:rofl:

THIS is why I am scared to make Socks
I have size 11 1/2W or 12W feet

Socks for me would be MARATHON to make
and I have become SUCH a fiber snob in the past year
(*under your-all influence for SURE*)

Well I am thankful that he really likes them.

But he keeps them for "special" occasions, because "You took so long to make them."

:wall: It took me two weeks, I thought that was fast for such big socks! But then he was comparing it to the socks I knitted for my 5 y/o daughter... those took 2 days...

wow, I have send a link to this post to my mom, who after knitting a pair of socks for me, then a pair for herself (both size 8 in shoes), declared that neither my dad nor my husband will ever get handknit socks because their feet are just too big (size 13, and size 12). Very nice work, and nice choice on the hubby too, if he appreciates your socks that much he must be a good one.

WOW... they look great! I felt like my DH's socks took forever, and he's only a size 10. I agree with you - two weeks is fast for such big socks!
