This year I did not. The result was that I spent December knitting frantically in an effort to finish in time. Then I started knitting in the order in which I would see people. This meant that I had an extra week to finish up the socks for my eldest and his family. Whew!
Behold the socks for my eldest! Nice manly socks. The yarn is Fortissima Socka (col.no. 0040). I worked a six-inch leg because I wanted to be certain that I had sufficient wool to finish the pair, as these are for a large foot. No problem.
Next up were socks for my daughter-in-law.
Remember that these two blessed me with a new baby in August? Baby Panda needed some Christmas socks too!
These socks are the cutest, tiniest things I've knit in ages. 32 stitches, and you're off to the races. Notice that they match the daddy socks? Just makes 'me even more cute. And talk about a quick project! Maybe one television show per section. And that's being generous.
