Anything goes project

Luxor socks by knitspot for Fred in CPY bamboo wool in Neptune colorway. I was concerned that this was "limp" and looked gigantic, but Fred tried it on and it looked fabulous. I'm really happy to say he didn't take it off for a few hours. Next pic will show him wearing the finished pair by the end of the month.
First sock took 1 1/2 balls. The slight sheen in the yarn is perfect for this pattern which looks much better ON the leg than off. :)

Part of Fred's red, white and blue birthday presents I make each year. Red Menehune socks next up.
