Xmas Socks For Bratty Bro

How about some quick 'knit' talk? Well, I'm currently trying to knit up some socks for my brother's Christmas and it is a slow, slow process let me tell 'ya. I'm only knitting the generic basic sock pattern but I'm beginning to wonder why on earth I chose to do it in 4ply yarn. It only ususally takes me a few days to knock out a pair for my own little size 4 tootsies (Eur 37) but brother dearest has big size 12 clown feet (Eur 47). Thus, this task seems never ending!

The yarn I'm using was a recent buy from budget supermarket Aldi. It was only £3.99 for 4 x 50g balls which is a bargain by any means. I thought the quality may not be superb (they do say you get what you pay for, dont they?) but it's knitting up fine. I chose the black/grey colourway for baby bro in the hope that they will actually be worn.
Now just to get the second sock done (sigh!)

The sock wool came from LIDL, not Aldi. When you cheat and try doing a weeks blogs in one evening you start making mistakes!
