Road trip socks complete

Hello, my name is Finished Socks.

I come from a long line of Finished Socks, but I am different from the others.  For one thing, apparently, I look like a lake with woods at the shore.  I don't see it myself, but it's not my job to see things.  My job is to keep feet warm, and if somebody thinks I look like a lake then more power to them.

Also I am not for the person who knit me.  This is very, very unusual and if my job weren't to keep feet warm I would probably be hurt.  As it is I know that my chances of being worn are dramatically higher away from said knitter.  She has a lot of socks already.

There are more stitches in me than in my peers, because the person I'm going to live with has slightly larger feet than the ones the rest of them keep warm.

I do share some common features with the other socks around me though.  Heel, cuff, toe: I've got them all.

And there is one other little thing...

Even though I'm bigger, I still fit my knitter.

(still pretty sure I'm heading out the door, though.)
