Xmas knitting is DONE

The last pair of xmas socks are done and delivered. The color looks black but is actually a combination of black, dark green, brown, and blue, plus metallic, none of which my camera could capture.

Pattern: Dead Simple Lace socks, by Wendy Johnson
Yarn: Dream in Color Starry, colorway Black Parade
Needles: US1
Modifications: None to speak of

These were knit toe-up, per Socks from the Toe Up, using short rows for the toes and heels. The only thing I didn't like about using short rows is the gap that invariably appears between the heel and gusset. Otherwise, a success.

Now onto some sweaters I've been holding in reserve.
