wip post I wrote back in February.Why, oh why, did I choose to make a men's size 11 for my first pair? At least they're knit out of aran weight yarn (way thicker than normal sock yarn), so they went quick. Here's my Ravelry page for more details.
They would've gone quicker, but I'm knitting for someone 3200 kms away and it's supposed to be a surprise. This lead to a lot of time wasted making people try the one sock on, googling size conversions, ripping back unnecessarily, and finally turning to Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's Knitting Rules book for guidance.
