Fir Cone Socks

When last we visited the Fir Cone socks, I was working on the leg of the first specimen, a gift for my boyfriend.

I have no memory whatsoever of finishing that sock or knitting the second, but I must have, see?

Ravelry informs me that I finished them November 9, 2012.  Good for me.

The yarn was Cherry Tree Hill "Sockittome" (which has apparently been discontinued?  A pity!) in "Java," a colorway chosen by the recipient himself.  It was nice, if a little splitty, but I think that was due to the needles I used.

It was my original intention to write up a pattern for these, but given the limitations of the medium (64 stitches gave me socks that fit a size 11 EEEEE foot), I never got around to it.  Maybe I will someday . . .

That is a little wide...said the woman with the 6.5EE feet. They're beautiful socks!
