I've just managed to sort out my sock club for next year. It's not really that exciting (more scary than anything) as 5 pairs are patterned, some with cables, some with twists and other mad things. For a bit of a break, the other 7 are plain.
I've put a plain and pattern together in an envelope with the yarn/pattern on a slip of paper and sealed it. I've also written "pattern then plain" on it, just in case I cheat, lol. The patterns are now in my ravelry queue so I can just hit a button and they're in the notebook.
Now the difference with my club is this: Because I don't think I'm that fast at sock knitting, the next pair will be started when the previous one is completed.
Hopefully by this time next year I will be on my 12th or 13th pair of socks!
I have left a slip out of the envelopes - Trekking XXL. That yarn was a pain for me during the year so those are the first 2009 socks to be knitted!
