At long last, I present Alex's Christmas socks! Alex is a huge Doctor Who fan (his favorite doctor goes back and forth between Smith and Tennant), and I managed to keep these a secret until Christmas. Everyone -- especially the people at my stitch groups -- knew about the socks except for Alex. I don't know how I pulled it off!
Pattern: FREE Police Box Sox by Audry Nicklin on Ravelry
Yarn: Schachenmayr Regia Trendpoint 6615 Blue, plus scraps of fingering-weight white and black yarn
The pattern was well-written. The colorwork was a pain in the butt, but once you get past that part, you'll fly right through it.
