I used to knit a lot for Christmas, but over the years I've scaled down quite a bit and now I only regularly knit for my mum. She'd mentioned in the past wanting a pair of rainbow striped socks, and I've had this rainbow Felici in my stash for her for a while, so this Christmas seemed like the perfect opportunity to knit it up.
These were knit using my basic sock recipe with my favorite garter-edged Eye of Partridge heel flap. I never knit any other heel, if I can help it. It was easy keeping these a secret from Mum, since we don't live together, and they only took a few evenings in front of Netflix and a night caroling at the bar to be finished.
I'm hoping to squeeze out one more FO this year—I have 68 rounds left on the second sleeve of my Arachne, so barring any major catastrophes, I should be able to bang the rest of it out long before the countdown tomorrow night!
