Christmas socks for Issac

While the NorDak Family was home I made templates of their feet as suggested by The Sock Therapist of Fish Lip Heel Fame. It became apparent that the pair I'd thought would fit The Tiger would be sadly to small and so it became necessary to knit another pair quickly before Christmas.
 
Pattern: Fish Lips Heel Sock Pattern
Yarn: Patons North America Kroy Socks Stripes
Colorway: 55520 Rusty Stripes
Amount: 2 skiens
Needle Size: US 0

I've finally moved down to a size 0 and like the tight fabric it produces.

After Christmas note: The boy loved his new socks and wore them 4 days straight! Everyone commented on the great fit of their socks, smaller needles AND the great template really helped me to knit socks that fit!
