Color: Lollipop 1012

There is much sock knitting going on in knitting blogland, and I'm no exception. It seems like a good way to finish up the knitting year and is helping me get a start on my gift socks for 2006.

These are daughter-in-law Anne's birthday socks for her early January birthday. The Lollipop 1012 has all the colors she likes - navy blue, black, deep red, dark green. I'm letting the self patterning yarn create the beauty without the help (or interference) of a stitch pattern.
