Go SU !

I am knitting away on this pair of socks that are Syracuse Orangeman colored for my Seattle son.
This pair of socks is taking longer than usual because he wears a size 16 shoe.
That is a lot of foot!
He loves my socks and I love him so it is a very worthwhile knit!
(Opal yarn on size 1 needles over 72 stitches)


  1. I love orange and I love Opal. Those are fabulous!

  2. Whoa! That is going to be one LONG sock! Love the way the fabric patterns.

    Happy knitting!

  3. Those socks are amazing . Having seen them play basketball for so long during NCAA, I'm a fan

  4. If mothers were paid by the inch for the collective length of their offsprings' feet, you would be a rich woman! Lol! Love those socks, and it will be nice to picture Jared wearing them. :)

  5. Size 16?? So you need two 100 gram skeins to knit him socks? It is a good thing he is related to you, eh? ;)

  6. wow, I had to hunt around online to even find 16 - to convert to european sizes! most of them end at 15... a lot of "mindless" knitting to do:) luckily the biggest size in my family is 14, but on the other hand those long feet make perfect tv knitting....

I measured out my 120" for the warp for my 24" Knitter's Loom by Ashford and began threading!  Of course, there were a few set...
