I love wearing handknit socks. I usually don't love making them. But then again, I usually knit plain socks and find them so boring to knit that they end up being reserved for meetings, waiting rooms, and car trips.
The "Firestarter" pattern may have changed all that. I loved knitting them (after I worked my way through some of the pattern quirks). I love wearing them too. Chalk this project up as a raging success!
I had so much fun with those ones that I just had to make another challenging pair right away. Meet my newest project, "La Digitessa" in red Cascade Heritage Sock Yarn.
Sixteen pages and numerous charts written for Bavarian travelling stitches in symbols that I've never before seen. Should be interesting.
