Socks for Christmas

Ok, just a couple more things to wrap up last year and then I can keep moving forward.

For the Christmas knitting I did get done... it was all socks. I have a little too much sock yarn (it's not that out of hand, really, but more than I can reasonably knit up in a year or two) and I have a few people on my list who are definitely knitworthy, so socks it was.

[Feeling left out? I'm not gonna post progress photos or give too much away, but there just might be a few people due to get belated gifts.]

Almost-plain socks for Mom in a one-of-a-kind hand dye from Miss Babs...

and some skull embellishment on a gorgeous Neighborhood Fiber Company burgundy for Kel.

These are all variations on a basic 64-stitch sock pattern that I've memorized... so no real "pattern" to share here.

Was there anybody knitworthy on your list this year?

Well, I had a niece and nephew on the list for knitted stockings, but you knew that already. Yay sharing anyway! http://www.ravelry.com/projects/chancel/falling-snow-stocking
