Mom bought me a few designs from which to select. Originally I wanted houndstooth, but when she saw all the choices I couldn't make up my mind.
In the end, we decided the argyle was the most appropriate.
Happily, my niece sprang into action and took over. She started wrapping it in the way her feet get wrapped for soccer.
Once the entire foot was covered, she carefully cut down the back of my leg. She had to cut down into the heel a little in order to open it enough to take it off my foot.
I think it's hysterical.
She put a few handfuls of rice in the bottom for weight, then carefully stuffed it with fiberfill.
She had to be careful not to overfill it and distort the shape.
I'll probably have to figure out a way to close the top up.
Now I have a way to display finished socks. Or even test them as I'm knitting them instead of trying it on my actual foot.
I'm also wondering whether this will help me embrace toe-up sock knitting as I'll be able to try the sock on the form to determine gusset shaping.
