I FINALLY finished these damn socks! They shouldn't have taken as long as they did. It didn't help I pretty much knit the first sock three times. I do love them. The pattern is Charade and the yarn is Trekking XXL. I love that each sock is one color repeat! What fun yarn.
In the end I knit these on size US 2 needles. If I had to do it over I'd probably go do to US 1.5 and add more stitches. The fabric is really loose. From what I hear that means the socks probably won't last as long.
And here are the socks with a fierce foot eating dinosaur!! Roar!
