Christmas Socks

When Hubby and I had our first Christmas together, we realized that we didn't have Christmas socks that 'matched at all (size, shape, etc.). So I sat down one night to a very tired sewing machine, and cranked out three new ones, one for me, one for him, and one for Chuck.

His & mine were done with alternating 'colours,' ie my trim was his main sock fabric, and vice versa.

His sock:

My sock:

And for
Chuck's I did completly different fabric:

Last year, for Buddy's first Christmas, I had to crank out another. This time, and I had a fancy, fairly new machine to work with. It went much faster, and much smoother, since the machine didn't jam every minute.
Buddy's Sock:

But I don't think I like his as much as those first three. The trim dosne't really contrast with the sock. I think I'm gonna have to pull it off, and give his a plain white toe & trim for next year.
