FO: Jose's First Handknit Socks.

These socks have actually been done for over a week now, but I haven't gotten the chance to get Jose to sit still and let me take pictures of him wearing them. This is the first pair of socks I've knitted for him.

These socks were actually going to be a Christmas gift, even though he saw me working on them and knew they were for him. A couple of weeks ago he mentioned how he was excited to be able to wear his knitted socks as soon as it got cold, and I didn't feel like reminding him that he wasn't getting them until the end of December. Oh well. Next project that's supposed to be for a present will have to be a secret.

Project Details:

Ravelry Project Page: Link
Pattern: Fit Well Socks by Amanda Cathleen Morgan
Yarn: Ella Rae Lace Merino in colorway 126
Needles: US 2 1/2 dpns

Thoughts on Pattern:

The pattern was very easy and good mindless knitting. I like the rows of plain knit in between each row of ribbing because it makes it a little bit different than your average ribbed sock. I've actually cast on another pair of these as a gift for someone else already.
