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.
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.
