My Christmas sock knitting is ahead of schedule and under control.
I have no sock blockers for Brother Dave's shoe size 14.
It's important to really really like the yarn I use for his socks, because I'm going to be knitting on it a long long time. It takes almost twice the amount of yarn I use for pair of socks for myself. So, I'm celebrating having these socks done in November.

Yarn: Opal Rainforest 6, Color 4005, Baronesse Bambalina.
