Christmas Knitting

In addition to the wrap I made for my Mother-in-law, I also knit two pairs of socks for Christmas gifts.
I knit a pair for my Brother-in-law, John, who is back from China now.  I'd never knit him socks before, but he seems to be enjoying them.  I'm not sure if he believes me that they are washable (I used Trekking XXL for them), but I'm sure he'll figure it out eventually.  These are plain vanilla, stockinette socks with a Fish Lips Kiss Heel.

I also knit a pair for Mickael because he's worn a couple of his pairs of socks out.  (Wool socks aren't meant to be worn outside on the concrete driveway.)  His are also Trekking XXL (the added nylon helps prevent holes when the socks are not respected).  I don't have a picture of Mickael's socks, but his are dark gray, dark khaki, and a very dark blackish blue.  I used the waffle socks stitch pattern for his socks.
Both of these socks were gifted for Christmas.  Once I finished knitting them, I cast on for a pair of Christmas socks of my own.  This is Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock lightweight in Comfort and Joy.  They were one of the skeins I got when I was part of the Rockin' Sock Club a few years back.  I love how they're knitting up like peppermint sticks.  Obviously, since I just started the second sock last night, these will be for next Christmas.
