By the time this wonderful plan filled my mind I had not yet realised that I had knit 8 pairs of socks last year, making 2016 somewhat Year of the Sock as well. In any case....
This was a KAL from our Dutch Sock knitters group. The pattern was released especially for the month of December, and per the rules of the group you have to cast on in December and finish before the end of the next month (January in this case). I cast on December 24th, and wove in the last bits of yarn on Janury 12th.
It's a smaller size than I usually knit because they are going to a friend who didn't have such a great 2016. I hope these happy socks can cheer her up!
And because knitting two socks that are exactly the same, I added a bit of cheeky detail.
Let's fill this community with lovely knitting projects!
