The most recent pair was for my son. He has rather large feet, so it pleases me that he doesn't like really long sock tops. Knit on 2,5mm needles over 76 stitches, the pattern is a simple 6/2 rib.
But the whole collection can be found here rather than have me bore you with the last few pairs.
It is now dark out on New Year's Eve and the fireworks have already started.

Pair 20 of 52, I finished these Austermann Step socks in color 13 for my Dad last night at 11:55! So they were technically finished on his birthday, but he's away working and won't be home til today sometime. They are plain vanilla socks made a bit bigger with an eye of partridge heel. More pics here. My last FO of 2007!
Happy New Year and Happy Knitting!

Well looks like I am over the half way mark... a huff and a puff... I am behind but I am still making progress with the size 11 socks. This pair is from the interweave book Favorite Socks, Mock Cable. Check the pattern before starting, but once it is going the sock is done in no time. Or was that because of the yarn, Lorna`s Lace Camoflouge size #2 needles. Hope to post a picture next week!
