Daddy and Daughter Socks

Today is my brother-in-law, John's birthday and this is the second year I have knitted him socks and I love the fact that he loves crazy colors.

I did the toes, heels and cuff in another color to make sure I had enough yarn, which I had plenty, so Eleanor, his daughter, gets matching socks!

Here are John's socks.
