Why yes......I do still knit!

My title says it all...I still knit occasionally!
These are Lou's Christmas socks finally done!

 This pattern can be found here To add a little visual interest I decided to go with an afterthought heel.
It seemed to me these socks fought me every step and I didn't think I'd finish in time.
I love this pattern..mainly because the cuff is stretchy and will fit any ankle and has a little bit of a pattern.
Yarn:-Wisdom Yarn Marathon Socks--Maui #261. I didn't mind the yarn although it was splitty and it was bought at "Tuesday Morning" on sale for $4 something  a skein....a bargain, and Lou loves his socks.
Needles:-Sz #1 as usual!
I'm hoping I knit a lot more in 2012.
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and got lots of knitting goodies under your tree!
