One Lozenge Sock - Done

My first completed Men's Lozenge Sock from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks.

In Lornas Laces Shepard Sport (Aslan colorway).

Altered cast on from 72(0s) to 60(1s) as pattern was for fingering weight, also altered the heel to a slip/knit heel, to strenghten it.

The sock fits Don well! Now he just needs the match. This sock feels HUGE compared to a women's sock. I feel like I could have knitted 3 pair of women's socks in the time it too for me to do this ONE. But I love it! I enjoyed doing the Weldon's wide toe, and am very happy with the look of it.
