The Eddard socks are complete, they just need the toes grafting together and closure of those little holes that you always get where the heel flap separates from the instep. I will get the recipient to try them on for size before doing that.
This was a nice pattern to knit. I might even make another pair. I now realise that I didn't interpret the instructions for the cables exactly the way the author intended. It was only a small difference that isn't at all detectable by looking at these socks, but I thought I might knit another pair anyway to see how it comes out when you are doing it properly.
