Size 11 socks finally completed. Knitted in the round on circular needles starting with 80 stitches per round. Sole knitted separately from top of foot and subsequently seamed together (I was following instructions for patterned socks). About 32,000 stitches in all. I have lost the label for the yarn but I think it was Wollmeise hand dyed twin sock yarn with 20% nylon.
