This year I am making my entire family (that is immediate family and my fiance) Christmas socks. No, they are not going to be all of the same pattern. That would just be too insane even for me and I would get really bored and stop knitting them. Instead, they are all going to have the same color palette but have different sock patterns. This way my family can't get them mixed up in the wash either.
The hardest part was actually planning the patterns that I wanted to use. Since Felici is a self-striping yarn it does play well with texure, but I also wanted to play with the stripe movement in some socks while still keeping the patterns simple and (hopefully) quick to make. Best of all, every single pattern I picked out are socks that I haven't made before, so there is no chance of me getting bored!
The line up is:
- Jaywalkers for Dad.
- Yarn Over Cable Socks for Mom.
- Circle Socks for my brother Hunter.
- Vanilla Latte for Will (the fiance for any newer readers out there).
- And Hedera Socks for me.
Are you doing any Christmas knitting this year?
