Yesterday was spent trying to make up for the negative progress on the Squid socks and replacing my new cell phone. It was also then spent restoring all of my "stuff" to the new cell phone.

Yes, the sock foot is larger then the piece of 8.5" X 11" piece of paper that is serving as its background. Mike has BIG feet. Yes, that is a "buttonhole" near the top. I had to work it flat for a while to accommodate the detail on the front.
