... The only socks bent on World Domination -- Kang and Kodos!
Kang is on the left and Kodos is on the right. (Yes, I can tell them apart.)
Notice how the tentacles come out over the sneaker? That was Mike's idea.His comment -- "these may not be your best socks but they are your most creative socks." I can deal with that. The foot is a bit too long and if you look closely you can see where I knit flat for a while and then seamed up the hole in the back. (Actually, you can't see it because it is in the back of the sock.)
Yarn: Cascade 220 superwash. Less then one ball used of each the mustard and moss.
Needles: Size 3 dpns
Knit toe-up with figure 8 cast on of 20 stitches -- too many.
The only measuring done on these socks was for the foot -- 9.5 inches before starting the heel. Mike has a size 11 foot.
If I had to make them again I would cast on few stitches for the toe and knit it in the green to provide a bit more foot interest. Mike would like to see a tentacle on the front of the foot but I think it would be uncomfortable in a shoe.

The next pair of "Squid" socks are now on the needle as I needed a simple project for the car this morning. They will also sport some 3-D details but I am not going to rush through them. My sweater takes priority.
Now for a nice evening of swatching.
