My Christmas gift to myself

I'm done I'm done I'm done! And it's not even midnight!

Schaefer Yarn #216 Anne Candy Cane Socks, by Kim Salazar, in Austermann Step Sock Yarn color #14 Keisel.
Notice the (as close as possible) matching stripes. Notice the way the lace pattern rotates in opposite directions on the socks. Notice the fact that this yarn is really freaking fine and the needles I used were really freaking small and I still have both my sanity and good nature intact. And I told myself I would finish them for Christmas, and I did.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some NON LACEY SOCKS to make, just to restore my faith in my ability to finish socks in weeks instead of months. Stupid eight-row pattern repeat ...
