so you may or may not remember that this ridiculously large sock was intended for a high school friend of mine. i finished it in time for christmas...so i decided to hang it in her locker full of hershey's kisses. at first she didn't recognize it as either a sock or a stocking (that speaks volumes about the general sock-y-ness of it)...but after a bit of explanation she was properly impressed/amused. she then proceeded to wear it on her head as a hat for the rest of the season. i got many other requests for sock hats, but did not make any more...it took too long to make a sock that wouldn't even go on a foot! i didn't try socks again for three or four years...but that's another story altogether.
the jaywalker is still in progress...pre-heel turn but getting close. the next clue on the mystery sock comes out on wednesday, so that'll be good. and in the process of moving i stumbled across a half finished sweater that i may or may not resume...love the color, not the pattern.
