I have joined the Pomatomus knit along hosted by Twisted Thistle. No button yet because I am eternally confused by this HTML thing and have to have my husband's help. Pomatomus is a sock pattern from Knitty, an online knitting "magazine". I've decided to use Stahl Sche Wolle Socka Cotton Color (I don't even know what part of that is brand name and what part is identifying the yarn) from my stash that is blue/turquoise/green variegated; I like the colors a lot and since it's half cotton I think they'll be comfortable for the summer.
I do have some slight concern regarding the size; I am not an experienced sock knitter (almost done with my third pair) so I'd love some advice. I have huge feet. 10" long, 9" circumference. Are these stretchy enough to fit me? I know I can adjust the length but I'm concerned about the circumference because the pattern says they're 7" unstretched.
