These socks are a gift for my sister for her birthday. Though it is a day after Christmas, who wants red and green socks, so I made this pair in a sweet pink, tan, cream combo called Frosting from Knitpicks, Tonal Handpainted yarn.

My daughter's birthday is 12/26 and we avoid red and green, too. Can't help the tree and decorations, but the birthday stuff has always been "birthday" colors.

Great socks!

Oh, I don't know about the red/green Christmas thing. We have what we call our Unchristmas Tree. Our Christmas tree has red, white, and blue ornaments and lights. We have gold star garlands, red/white/blue ribbons and American flags, and a star on top. It has yellow ribbons for the safe return of our troops. We started our patriotic tree tradition after 9/11/2001.

That's a great looking sock--very mellow and anti-green and red, but beautiful nonetheless!

I'm thinking your sister is going to want another one to go with this one! :wink:
