Christmas Socks and a new Skein Knit-Along

I haven't had a lot of time lately to do much knitting, especially with the Christmas rush, but I did manage to finish a pair of socks in time for Christmas for my Dad..

Pattern: Movie Night Socks by Anne Hanson
Yarn: Skein Top Draw Socks - Mangrove
Needle Size: 2.25mm / US 1
These turned out really well, great fit and super fast to knit.  It must be the summer weather because I have CO for another pair of socks, which Im making fast progress on, but more about those later :)

I also wanted to mention that we are running a Skein 12in2012 knit-along over on the Ravelry group.  Basically its 12 projects knit in Skein yarn over the next year and if you complete this challenge you could win $200 to spend at the Skein store, plus all those who complete the challenge will receive a free pattern by Indigo and Quince.  There will also be monthly prizes, so if you finish a project and post a picture of it in the 12in2012 forum thread your eligible to win a skein of Skein :)  See the Skein Ravelry group for more details.
