Doc’s dad loves handknit socks, which means he will get a pair every year for his birthday and for Christmas for the rest of his life, because really good gift ideas are rare and it’s always nice to have a sock on the needles.

Here’s the progress on the birthday pair, which┬áis starting to look a little like a sock monkey:

This yarn has been discontinued since I made his first pair from it, but it’s been reported as “the warmest” and requested again. I found a few balls on eBay but wanted to stretch them into two pair–hence the colorblocking. (The Christmas pair will be this colorway reversed, if my yarn estimates are right.)
