Close of (Christmas) knitting

The Christmas knitting is finished! The last couple of finished objects for 2006 were socks for Rox and a nose warmer for Martha. Got the pattern for the nose warmer from Any Singer’s Knit Wit, it’s just a short-row sock heel. I skipped the tassel and used ribbon for the ties; it earned me a thump on the shoulder and a huge grin from the recipient. Mission accomplished.

I’m going to go back to the Eternal Sweater sleeve, and start a pair of socks with the Lizardman yarn I got from Twisted on Etsy. Question is, what new technique do I incorporate into this pair? A hemmed top like the rolling thunder socks (which means a top down heel flap, and I’m not good at that)? All over lace like Falling Leaves, instead of just a panel? The Widdershins style of toe up heel flap sock? What would you do next? What’s your favourite sock technique?


  1. I’m a hardcore top-down, flap-and-gusset-heel sock knitter, but that isn’t what you want to hear, is it? 😉

    Anyway, I see that your yarn is self-striping, so just pick a pattern that will work well with the stripes, and you’ll be all set. Something chevron-y, like Feather and Fan / Old Shale or the Jaywalker pattern, is always nice…
