I finished the first sock for Doc’s dad and it’s a little…rustic. It will smooth out more after I wash it but the thicker yarn and the BRIGHT RED are just screaming Christmas presents from Little House In The Big Woods: 

In each stocking there was a pair of bright red mittens, and there was a long, flat stick of red-and-white striped peppermint candy, all beautifully notched along one side.

They were all so happy they could hardly speak at first.


Maybe I should wrap the socks with a stick of peppermint?
