Size 16eeee

So size 16eeee...WOW
The smaller(heehee)sock is mine, size 6.5-7.5. The BIG socks are Austerman Step...for the Vintage Sock KAL. They are the Plain Winter Socks. The second ball was reverse wound so the striping on the foot is reversed from each other, I was rather upset about that. the socks used approximately 1.3 balls.
DH made the comment he has never had a sock that goes so far up his leg. Size 3 dpns, changed from 70 to 90 sts and altered accordingly.

Wow, glad to see the pictures of the different size socks. I have made Jesse 2 pairs of socks so far. The Hufflepuff socks have a 10 inch k2,p2 rib so when I am done the darn think is longer than a sweater sleeve.

Ouch! Size 16? I thought my husbands size 12 took forever! I was unable to get my stripes matched with the Austermann yarn. Your husband is one lucky guy!
