Essential Socks for bro

A progress shot of a pair of socks for my brother - maybe for Christmas, maybe not. No pressure here. Mom and I are knitting these. Each knitting one. It was fun finding our gauge.... We found a perfect match with me on size US 2s and mom on US 3s. We are even getting the same row gauge - unheard of! We check every inch or so. We hope to get to the heel today before mom heads back to the ranch. We can work the heel/turn/gusset on our own before meeting up on the foot to make sure we are still "spot on" with our gauge. Yarn is a new one for me, Knit Picks Essential Tweed - Russet, which is more a rich chocolaty brown.
