just got here

Hello everyone!

So, I was not sure if I would be able to tackle the Yarnissima's lovely Firestarter pattern because of my avoidance of twisted stitches and cables, but here I am. ;)

DSCN3700

This is the first sock and I am so happy with how it is working out. I should have left off one of the cable medallion repeats in order to fit me a bit better, but this pair might just be a gift for my sis, who has slightly bigger feet than I do.

The yarn is from Lime and Violet 100% merino in the Sideshow edition - Jane the Giantess. I love how it is working with the pattern, even if it is a bit thinner than the recommended STR and Wollmeise.

(Thanks for the invite, Fabz. :)

Cheers!
