Not a lot too big, just enough that I knew the socks would never fit me correctly.
I knew I had the following choices:
Rip it out and pick another stitch pattern for a smaller repeat round
Rip it out and try smaller needles
Make it for someone with wider feet
I decided to go for smaller needles. I just really liked the pattern, and could not figure out how to make a 10 pattern repeat work across 52 or 56 stitches.
So, I Started again on size 0 needles, knit the same 3 inches and tried it on again. It is still a smidge bigger than I like my socks, but I think it is at a point where they won't sag and they won't bug me.
Again, no feet picture, but I did take a windowsill picture, when we had enough sun to make that work:
