Wave those flames
I finished the first 'flame wave' sock (try saying 'flame wave' three times fast. Go on, I'll wait).
This is from the IK "Favorite Socks" book (which I love) and were designed by Ann Budd (sock designer extraordinaire). The yarn is Elann Esprit, and I used probably 2/3 of the ball on the sock (only did two repeats for the leg, and the pattern calls for three, but you know me, instant gratification is important). I like the sort of pale pastel moss green color of the socks, and I love this yarn. I'm very pleased with how this turned out. I also had a kitchener epiphany when using this yarn (pull really, really tight) so even the toes look good now!
If you have a second, would you please bop over to Tim's new web site ? He's starting to market his ceramics and has started his website as an adjunct to the information he's mailing out to galleries. Hopefully he'll have some interest soon! Thanks!
