Here's the proof. I did it. Actually, I did it twice. There is another which I wouldn't really call a twin, more like a close relative of this big guy. I know it doesn't look it but this is one big sock to fit James' size 11 foot. The yarn is STR in a semi-solid that I bought at least a year ago. I was going to use it for a baby sweater. Hah! It seems the sock knitting voices and James' desire to have a pair of hand knit socks took care of my resistance to knitting socks.
Jane's Hedgerow pattern has been designated to a different yarn. The Somoko just didn't do justice to the pattern. Luckily I have some Fleece Artist Merino 2/16 that will be perfect. The colorway is amethyst and it's really pretty dark. I'd call it a semi-solid. I also have Bess's twisted sock going in Spirit Trail sock yarn.
I'm off to Sunny climes to visit mom, who's just had shoulder surgery. I'm sure there will be lots of knitting in the waiting room of rehab three times a week. What am I bringing to knit? Socks, of course.
