Well, I finally got around to uploading a picture of the socks I knit for my friend Ruben, they're just basic but since I had to write the pattern and only had measurements to go by (he refused to cut off his foot and mail it to me) I decided to do nothing fancy.
So here they are in all their glory. I was thrilled to find out that they fit him perfectly and he's already hounding me to make the next pair. Since this was a trial pair, a pair he wanted just to keep his feet warm around the house, doesn't like wool and wanted something he could easily care for i.e. they didn't end up toe warmers after washing, I just used worsted weight wool-ease from Lion on size 7 needles. They were made to fit a US size 15 (nope not a typo I said fifteen) each sock took about 3/4 of a skein and he's kind of a silly guy so after I make him a few more pairs all different colors of course, I'm going to make a pair using the left overs of all the other skeins.
~edit~ after all that, I forgot to upload the image
