First Finish for 12 in 2012 Challenge

I went back and counted, and I knitted 10 pairs of socks in 2011, so 12 in 2012 shouldn't be a big stretch. I wouldn't mind trying to get some other knitting done too, but the challenge will keep me on track with the socks.

These lime green anklets are for my daughter-in-law. I finished these the other day. After they're blocked, they're going in the mail.

This pair is already in the works for February. I loved this yarn when I saw it, but I wouldn't have guessed it would knit up like this. I guess I thought the striping would be more distinct, and I'm not sure if I like it or not. The other thing that bothers me is that the colors look nice and bright in the skein, but they seem dull in the actual sock.

I like to work on two socks at a time, switching back and forth; but I can't start the mate for this pair yet because I only have the one skein of yarn. So next up will be a pair for my sister-in-law.

These are the only socks I made last year that I actually kept. The others were all given away as gifts, and I only remembered to take pictures of a couple pair.
