The Socks for Dad are no longer Socks for Dad.
As you know, I'd gotten halfway down the foot of one sock. I decided to try it on during the flight from London to see how many inches I needed to knit before a heel decrease. Dad's foot is half a size larger than mine.
I could get it over my heel but only with effort. He'll never wear them if they're that hard to put on. What happened was I worked with my usual sock numbers but this stitch pattern has less elasticity than ribbing.
As I see it, the best thing to do is finish them and give them to someone with smaller feet. In the meanwhile, I have mittens and a baby sweater to make for my Second Steps class.
