December socks

So here we are, then end of the year.
I started the December socks at the beginning of the month. 
I can make it with time to spare!
Yeah, right....
Got the plan laid out for the socks (finally), got the yarn all ready, got the first sock done, then the needle snaps!
Oh! Great! Two sets broken in one year.... grrrrrrrrrrr...
I have another set in the same size, but they are metal and I always have a different gauge with metal compared to bamboo... so here I am on the second to last day of the month and only have one sock done. I am sorry....
I will finish them as soon as I have my bamboo needles (they are ordered, but not here yet). I get 15 sets of 5 :) Part of my Christmas present from DH.

I will however start with the January socks non the less on Tuesday! It will be a twitter KAL with a few other wonderful Twitter-knitters! Can't wait to start!
Oh... the December sock picture. I have one of the first sock :) I won't wear them until the second one is done, but you can see the general gist of the matter. I won't stitch on the skulls (you don't even see them in this picture anyway), I have found a few buttons that look cute on them instead!
I was going for Roller derby! Can you tell?

I will give you the stats along with the second sock. :)
I wish all of you a happy and healthy new year full of hand-knitted socks!See you then!
