I got in some practice last week...

I finally found some time to sit down with some leftover sock yarn (the Knittery merino cashmere sock yarn in midnight, if you're interested!), dpns and this book:
and made these:Little Coriolis sock on the left, and Little Sky sock on the right. Cat Bordhi really is a design genius!
Little Coriolis is knit toe up with the "gusset" increases going over the instep of the foot in the spiral pattern, with a regular turned heel and heel flap at the back of the heel. Little Sky is knit top down, with the "gusset" increases coming from a centre point at the top of the instep down each side of the top of the foot. Then you turn the heel and the heel flap ends up underneath the heel.

I'm really looking forward to knitting a me-sized pair of socks from this book - starting this weekend!

Oh I hope you get lots of time to make good progress on these while you're away. I'll be waiting with anticipation to see what you come home with!
