I love the Hawaiian Tattoo Socks, which have a great flowing wave combined with a geometric triangle pattern – http://www.knitpicks.com/patterns/Hawaiian_Tattoo_Socks___D11553220.html
The Hotcross Bones Socks are just plain fun – http://www.knitpicks.com/patterns/Hot_Crossbones_Socks__D10740220.html
And, I like the Fishgyle Socks Pattern, because the name is funny – http://www.knitpicks.com/patterns/Fishgyle_Socks_Pattern__D10017220.html
Another thing I don’t want is a tea cozy. If I want to make tea and serve it promptly I have a lovely china teapot. If I want my tea to sit and stay warm, I have a lovely teapot shaped thermos that keeps the tea warm for hours, so I have no need for a tea cozy to keep my tea in a pot warm. It’s too bad, because the KnitPicks African Queen Tea Cozy pattern is good fun - http://www.knitpicks.com/patterns/African_Queen_Tea_Cozy___D11758220.html.
(Hmm, I’ve only ever had one person serve me tea and keep the pot warm with a tea cozy. I’m thinking this might make a good Christmas present for this certain someone.)
