Christmas came and went. We celebrated two birthdays, mine and Rachels.
There were lots of lovely gifts. Now the decorations are gone and it's time for new projects. For me, anything that was NOT A SOCK was considered.
I settled on Antler using a yarn I bought at The Wool Cabin a while back. Suzette was kind enough to order it in for me. It's Madeleintosh aran weight in the colorway...Antler.
The size 12 socks are finished. I only got 1 1/2 sock done for Christmas but Bruce tried the one on (can you tell the sock on the right was on a foot?) and declared it lovely....and ummmmmmmmmmmmm...
just a bit big. Turns out he wears an 11 shoe...oops! I'm hoping to (dare I say it) shrink them a tiny bit.

I like the cuff so much I made two socks using the twisted stitch pattern and did them toe-up.
I'm ready for that new sweater. No more socks for me for awhile.
