Christmas socks

This is Hubby's sock. I should be able to get these done by Christmas eve. That's the start of the first heel. Of coarse I have not touched these in 3 days now due to the blanket. I only have about 50 more rounds to knit on the blanket. There are however about 1200 sts on the needle right now then I have to bind off this thing. Just keep knitting. I am rather upset with myself about the deadline knitting. I had finished early! Then I go and change the rules. I guess it just would not be the Holidays without some stressed out gift knitting.

The socks, by the way are knit on 2.75mm dpn's. The yarn is Schachenmayr nomotta Regia Galaxy Color. Colorway 1552. The wonderful knitlady sent me this yarn last year. The colors pool and stripe to form galaxies. Its kind of awesome. The yarn is a wool/nylon blend so it should wear well. knitlady I miss you! You still out there?

And now I must go knit on the blankie.
