Just joining and loving the pattern

Hi all I just wanted to stop by and show you progress of my "Firestarter". I started it a few days ago and found the knitalong and couldn't wait to join. I look forward to seeing all your in progress and finished socks. Here is my WIP.

Yarn: Yarn Pirate Booty Club in "Calamity"

Needle Size: 2.5 mm circular

Sockblockers: My own made out of a plastic placemat (placemat was 50 cents...can't beat that!) tutorial on how to make your own blockers here.

Thank you Yarnissima for a great pattern!

I love that colorway. It's fantabulous. And great tip on the sock blocker!

Thank you for the sock blocker tip - only see them in the states so far. How are you finding the calamity for the socks? I have it too, but am leaning towards pink yarn.

Those are looking great- I like the color very much!

I also love the idea for the Sock Blockers! Although, I do have to admit that I have never felt a need for a pair, but if I ever do...
