It's often been said that sock knitting is addictive and it's easy to see why: they're relatively quick, very portable and the creative possibilities are endless. Designer Ann Crick loves to use the Eye of the Partridge heel flap, which not only adds extra detail to your sock, but is strong and hardwearing. The lovely lace pattern runs down the leg and top of the foot. Remember to block your socks afterwards to even out the lace pattern.
