They're Done

These are the official first finished object of subdue it with a sweater. Apparently if you knit on a project, it gets finished. Who would've guessed?

What we have here is a pair of Trekking XXL socks in a mens size twelve. These are knit is a 5x1 rib in a standard sock pattern on size one addi turbos (2.25mm) using the magic loop method. Somebody really ought to come up with a less dorky name for a relatively sophisticated technique.
I started these last August and finished on the 21st of May. I know. Laziness is next to, I don't know, awesomeness? Maybe not, but hey look! Socks!

Recently, I'm obsessed with Trekking XXL. What colorway did you use?
