Hubby's Christmas socks are done with days to spare! The yarn is called Galaxy by Regia. A wool/nylon blend. I like it. Should hold up well. One of the great things about Hubby is he will wear any crazy socks I knit him. I may have to test this theory by knitting him some green socks with purple stripes or something. I have a new pair of socks otn for me. Most of the socks I knit this fall were for others. I need more wool socks! It is starting to get cold out there!
