Is this sock as huge as it seems?
I just finished this sock this evening and it seems huge. It's for a size 11 shoe, but I dunno. I think I could fit both my feet in this one sock. Take a look here if you'd like.

It's really impossible to tell when it's not on the recipients foot, but it looks wonderful!

Take a picture with your foot next to it.

It's looks big to me. Were you supposed to use size 5 needles?

I had a friend of mine try it on, who wears the same size shoe, and it fits him. So I can keep my fingers crossed it'll fit my brother. It definitely doesn't fit me, hehe. I have small feet and this one is for a size 11 guys foot.

Yes, yes I am. I wasn't sure what I'd do with one huge sock and I really don't think I would have made another to go with it, hehe. I was a bit confused too, 'cause I measured gauge a couple times going through it since it seemed big then too and it worked. Maybe I just got paranoid over nothing. Thanks y'all

If it didn't fit, you could have used it as a Christmas stocking, I guess. :D

Maybe you could have trimmed it with silver eyelash yarn!
