Christmas Socks 2015

Every year I make Jim a pair of socks for Christmas.
This year I am really ahead of the game.
His socks are done for 2015.
The yarn is Madelinetosh Sock in the color Spectrum that I bought at  Madtosh  last September when I was in Texas.
The toes are Regia Extra Twist Merino.
The sock pattern is the SKYP Rib Socks from Mushroom Knits.  I actually just used the stitch pattern for the socks and did my normal heel and foot pattern for the rest.
.  I didn't have quite enough to finish both toes with the Madelinetosh yarn as it has only 395 yards in a skein so I made them purple.
I think this may be my signature toe going forward.
 His Christmas socks for the upcoming year are done so this now means I have the entire year to knit whatever strikes my fancy.
Oh be still my heart!
